I'm trying to use relink back-end tables function found at  http://www.mvps.org/access/tables/tbl0009.htm

For this function below, I receive an Compile error "Sub or Fucntion not defined for  "ahtAddFilterItemmessage"  Would anyone know why I'm receiving this error message?

 
Function fGetMDBName(strIn As String) As String
'Calls GetOpenFileName dialog
Dim strFilter As String

    strFilter = ahtAddFilterItem(strFilter, _
                    "Access Database(*.mdb;*.mda;*.mde;*.mdw) ", _
                    "*.mdb; *.mda; *.mde; *.mdw")
    strFilter = ahtAddFilterItem(strFilter, _
                    "All Files (*.*)", _
                    "*.*")

    fGetMDBName = ahtCommonFileOpenSave(Filter:=strFilter, _
                                OpenFile:=True, _
                                DialogTitle:=strIn, _
                                Flags:=ahtOFN_HIDEREADONLY)

You are making a function call to a function the VBA compiler does not recognize.  Are you
sure you have it somewhere in your project?  WHere?  How is it declared?

I copied the original code from http://www.mvps.org/access/tables/tbl0009.htm.  I looked at the coding structure but I'm not sure if I should declare "ahtAddFilterItemmessage" as anything. Since strFilter has an equals in front of it.  The full code is pasted below.
