ActiveX componet can't create object error

stacey14 asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have a VB6 program that calls a Access 2000 report and saves it out as a snapshot file for viewing.
This works great on my development PC but when I create an install package I get the following error when I trying to call the report:

    "ActiveX componet can't create object"

I have referenced the Access library in my project.
I'm using late binding to call Access. Should I be using the Createobject function?

any help or suggestion would be great.
