Broken Reference to file grctrl.ocx

I have an error when attempting use certain functions within an existing database.

The error stated that the database has a broken reference to file grctrl.ocx version 1.1

Can you help ?

I am running access 2003.

In any code module go to Tools:Referenes, and eyeball whether there is a checked value with the prefix MISSING in front of it.  If so, you'll have to uncheck it, then hit the Browse button and manually find the grctrl.ocx file in order to re-reference it.

Hope this helps.
To add to Jim's missing statement check, best after unchecking first to use Debug/Compile all modules
When there's no error you don't have to add the reference.
Access will leave the references for places but later removed ActiveX controls and doesn't perform a garbage collect on it :-(
