I have seen a couple of similar questions, but I am hoping there might be a simple solution to my particular version.

I have a database on a laptop with office 2003.  I have synchronized it with my desktop running office XP (2002) without a problem for some time.  I recently added some vba code that uses the Date function in conjuction with Outlook automation from Access.  When I synced it, the desktop running 2002 crashed trying to boot the switchboard with Missing date function message.  

Can I use the Microsoft Outlook 11.0 reference library from the laptop on the desktop running 2002?  Or will that crash something else.

the message that Date is Missing, indicates that you have a 'Broken Reference' in your application.  Open the Database in design mode, go to ANY code page (a page that has VBA code), and then click on Tools/References from the menu bar.  You will probably find at least one Reference marked as 'MISSING'


If that is the case, make not of the Missing Reference, and UNCHECK it.  then Click the Ok button.

Once again, open Tools/References  and now search the the alphabetical list of COM references for the one that was previously 'MISSING', or one that is close (if you have a problem with this step, simply post back here what was MISSING, and I will try tompoint you in the reight direction) and then select it, by clicking the checkbox next to the Reference, then click the OK buttons again.  That should solve the problem.
