We were using Outlook 2003 and everything was working fine. Now we hava
planned to shift to Outlook 2007. But we found the "Microsoft CDO 1.21
Library" missing in Office 2007." while running VBA script which was working
fine in Outlook 2003. Could any one please let me know what is the similar
file or simple solution is there to overcome this error. Will it require to
change our complete/all scripts which uses this library?

Hi, deshaw.

Outlook 2007 eliminates the need for CDO.  You will need to rewrite the code to replace anything using CDO with built-in 2007 properties and methods.  I cannot tell you exactly what that will entail since I do not know anything about your code and how it was using CDO.
