Missing: Microsoft DAO 2.5/3.5 Compatibility Library

I'm loading an Access database I've been using at work on to my home computer and I'm getting this message.

I know how to select References, but where can I find/download one that is "missing."

Is it available as a download from Microsoft.  I'm running XP professional, Access 2002(?)

Thanks for your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the 'missing' entry is totally un-needed for you.  It is an OLD dll, that was provided to bridge between Access 2(about 10 years old version of Access- which used the Olde version of DAO - version 2.5) and Access 95/97  All current versions of Access use either DAO 3.51 or 3.6 and Access 2000+ uses ADO, and  you should not have anything that uses DAO 2.5.  You can safely UNSELECT that 'missing' DLL.
