Hi
my project was running perfectly.
I installed the windows Service Pack2.
Now I tried to run my program again and it tells me that Excel Object reference is missing.
But under Project/Reference this has been ticked.

Now I made a new project and i donot receive this error.

How can I upgrade my old project.

thanks a lot.

Open your VB project > Reselect the reference and compile it again.

But a better solution would be to use late binding instead of early binding.
The benefit of late binding is that it does not check for the exact version you referenced.

For example, if you declare the object like this :

Dim XXX as NEW Excel.Application

then change it to

Dim XXX
Set XXX = CreateObject("excel.application")
