I have an access database that references MSOWCF.DLL and in some cases the reference works and in cases where the user is on Office11 (name of the Program Files/Microsoft Office directory), it shows as a broken link.  How do I handle this?  I have one user with Office11 and another user on Office 2002?

Where have u placed MSOWCF.DLL in the version that works?
Im wondering whether u take a copy and place in the windows directory or some predefined directory e.g. c:\mydlls
then register and reference that dll

MSOWCF.DLL is nowhere to be found on my office11 machine.  On the office10 machine it is found in the office10 directory.  When I completely remove the reference on the office11 machine the application works, but I'm worried that it won't work on the office10 machine if I remove it.

The other way of course is to del and readd the reference

When u go into Tools/References, what is the name given to this DLL?

e.g.

'Remove existng
References.Remove References("Name Of My DLL")

'Add again
References.AddFromFile sOfficeDir & \MSOWCF.DLL"


now sOfficeDir is a variable, u can check for its existence using predefined directories
eg

sOfficeDir = ""
If dir$("c:\program files\microsoft office\office\MSOWCF.DLL") <> "" then
    sOfficeDir = "c:\program files\microsoft office\office\MSOWCF.DLL"
elseif dir$("c:\program files\microsoft office\office10\MSOWCF.DLL") <> "" then
    sOfficeDir = "c:\program files\microsoft office\office10\MSOWCF.DLL"
elseif dir$("c:\program files\microsoft office\office11\MSOWCF.DLL") <> "" then
    sOfficeDir = "c:\program files\microsoft office\office11\MSOWCF.DLL"
end if

Well something along these lines anyway

Is this DLL not the office web components? Perhaps it was not installed as part of their office install
