I am getting the following Visual Basic error in an Access Database (mdb):

Compile error:
User-defined type not defined

The variable that it doesn't recognize is "New ADODB.Recordset"

This database has worked just fine without any issues. Now it doesn't recognize the ADODB variable types.

What's changed in your environment? This usually indicates that an update or some other upgrade has either moved or overwritten DLLs on the offending machine. Have you opened the DB up and checked for any missing references?

Make sure that you have your references set up properly:
From the VBA Editor:

Tools -> References
Make sure that
Microsoft Activex Data objects Librery v x.x   is checked

If it is checked and labelled MISSING, uncheck it and select the right version from the list.
Click OK to save and exit

Check Project/References - make sure you've still got reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.x Library

in case the References suggestions does not fix this ... can you post all the relevant code?
