Access 2003: Error Executing the Command
Posted on 2008-09-29
I have an Access application in which you can open various forms from a switchboard. The database is in an Access 2000 file format. I can run the application successfully on some PCs, using either Access 2000 or 2003. All clients are on Windows XP.
My problem is that I have configured 2 new PCs that cannot run all of the selections from the switchboard. A couple of the choices generate an error saying There was an error executing the command. The only difference I can find is that on the PCs that work, the Jet Core Components only has Jet 2.x version 3.51.0623.0. On the newly configured PCs there are both Jet 2.x and 3.x core components on version 4.00.9502.0.
Do I need to update my Access application so the newer versions of Jet can work? Or should I go back a version of Jet on the client PCs? I want to be sure that whatever solution I use all users will still be able run the application. We have a mixed environment of clients running Access 2000 and 2003.
