Obtaining a reference to the MS Access 10.0 Object Library

I have Access 2000 and so can only reference the MS Access 9.0 Object Library. I was wondering if there is any way to obtain a reference to the MS Access 10.0 Object Library without installing Access XP. Some bits of code I am using require a reference to the 10.0 library.

Thanks

No ... Access doesn't even expose the "other" library in the listing of references (I've got XP and 2000 installed on this machine, and from within an XP session the ONLY Access library I see is teh 10.0 library). Not only that, the only way to get a copy of the 10.0 library is via your licensed versions of XP, but you are NOT allowed to distribute that particular library unless you have a copy of Office Developer ... and if you do, then just move your application to XP and deploy your application with the Runtime (which is basically the XP library without design elements).

What functions are you trying to use from XP? There is almost always a workaround ...
