When database opens, a message appears on missing DAO 3.6 dll
The library references shows MISSING Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library.  Scrolling down the list only finds 3.51 but not 3.6  
How can this be located?  Thanks

    Uncheck 3.6 and select 3.51 ... and see if that works?

    What version of Access / Office / Windows ?

    DAO3.51 is the version that was included with Access97.

    If you are using any later version of Access you will have DAO3.60 installed.
    If you have developed using dao3.60 you must be using A2000 or later and this app will not run on A97 unless you convert it to an A97 version (on the Tools menu).
