Can't open Switchboard Manager or any Wizard in Access 2003
Posted on 2004-08-20
On a standalone workstation with an install of Access 2003 (upgraded from 2000) the Switchboard Manager will not open, nor will any of the included wizards run. The error message is the same for everything:
"MS Office Access can't find the wizard, or the wizard has not been installed, or there is a syntax error in the Delcarations section of a Visual Basic module."
I have tried all of the following to no avail:
Reinstall Office 2003 and make sure that all the components are installed on the computer.
Deleted acwztool.mde and then did a Repair Office 2003.
A possibly related problem is that the switchboard will not open for any Access database, including the Northwind Sample Database. I get this error message when I try to open the Northwind Sample Database:
"The expression On Open you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: The expression you entered has a function name that Microsoft Office Access can't find."
