(Missing) Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 6.0(SP4)

While trying to install a database on another computer I get the message "Library not found" when a statement references "date" (a member of VBA.DateTime according to the object browser).

When I check the references on that computer, I find the following:

(Missing) Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 6.0(SP4)

I have loaded all the service packs but still get the "Library not found" message.

What's up?  What am I missing?

Thanks, Lyle

It sounds like you may not even need it ... try unchecking it and then compiling ... this should point to any difficulties. A lot of times libraries get added and never used. The particular error you got had nothing to do with the Common Control, it just happened to get tripped up by it. VBA is usually the first thing to get goofy when Libraries (any one) is MISSING.

on the VBA window

Tools>References
Uncheck the one with MISSING:{take note of the name}
locate the available references and select

The Common Controls OCX used to be part of the Visual Basic Runtime. It's not part of the service packs, but you can transfer it by locating either MSCOMCTL.OCX or COMCTL32.OCX (usualling in Windows/System32) and copying and registering it on the target PC. I think the one you want is MSCOMCTL.OCX, but I couldn't swear to it.

if you can not find it on the Reference window
click Browse and look for

C:\WinNT\System32\mscomct2.ocx

Capricorn,

I unchecked the missing reference, then browsed for it as you suggested.  

When I checked the references and checked the one that was needed I noticed it didn't have the (SP4).  

I don't know yet if that is a problem--the program appears to work, but I need to push it a bit to find out if this has solved the problem.

Thanks, Lyle

Steve,

I tried unchecking the reference and the problem hasn't reoccured for about a day now.

This is a useful thing to know--that references may be added for one reason or another, then not unchecked when it turns out they are not needed.

Thanks, Lyle
