I have code in my startup form that fixes broken references. However, before the form loads I get the message: " Your myname database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file ..........

How do I stop that message?

You have to be careful not to call or load any code that requires one of your broken references before you fix the references.

Access will load modules "as-needed". So put your code that fixes references in a separate module and make sure that there is no other code in that module that requires one of your broken references. Make sure no forms are loaded at startup that run code that requires one of the broken references.

Then using an autoexec macro, call your function (and only your function) that fixes the references. This will load only the reference-fixing module, and not any of the others. At the end of your function that fixes the references, call your startup procedure that exists in another module using the Eval function. Ex.:

varRtn = Eval("MyStartupFunction")

This way, it is only when the Eval function executes that your subsequent modules will be loaded, and you will have the references fixed by then.

Hope this helps

Actually, I think this is the way to do it:

varRtn = Eval("MyStartupFunction()")
