If M$ DAO Object Library is not available from Reference, you can try click the Browse button, and find it at:

<Program Files folder>\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO

and find for the respective DLL (like DAO350.DLL, dao360.dll)

ryancys is very likely correct... 'User-Defined type not defined' usually means that you forgot to set a refernect, say to DAO.Recordset, and without it Access doesn't know what a DAO.Recordset is.
