Missing reference in Access 2003.  Trouble with Activex Control.

This is an extreamly urgent request.
I've downloaded the following activeX control http://www.jrsoft.de/indexe.html

I ran the Setup file that came out of the zip file and installed.
I ran the Install.bat from C:\Program File\JRSpell\ file to register the jrspeller.ocx

There is a sample database (A2K RTF2 Sample) doing the exact same thing i'm trying to do with the RTF2 from Lebans. Inside that sample DB: Alt+11 opens the VB code. Tools>References will show a list of references.  In that list is "JRSpellAx". When I go into my own database I cannot find this 'Reference'.
I tried to browse for a .dll but that only leads me to C:\Program Files\JRSpell\_ISREG32.dll but that doesn't do anything.

I've been able to register the ActiveX inside Tools>ActiveX Controls and I can see it in Access.

How do I get it to show up under "References"?!

Thanks!

I am guessing here (educated) that you need to put your form in design view, then go to the toolbox on the toolbar, find the control and drag it on to your form.
