I am running access 2007 on a xp. I tried to share the database file with windows 7 pc running 64 bit on my network. I created a share folder on xp and tried to access on win 7 pc, but I got the following pop up message : missing or broken reference to the file 'asctrls.ocx' version 1.0

Eventually I can open my database, but it seems I am not able to save it and if I open first on win 7 pc and then on xp I will not be able to open it. 1 2

Well, you are going to need to fix the reference.  Do you know how to do that?

Click on the Database tools tab and open the VBA editor. Then choose Tools>References. Click on the 'asctrls.ocx'  reference. It should be marked as Missing. Then click browse and find it on your computer.

"where do I locate VBA editor on windows 7? "
It's part of Office/Access, not Windows per se.
Open Access.
If there are no existing Modules, click to create a new one; or open an existing one.  Either way will expose the VBA Editor.  Then from the menu, Tools>>References.  Look at the list and see if any show:

**MIssing <SomeReferenceName>

Resolve the issue by finding the missing reference, which according to JM79 is in the Win32 folder.

"I should only do it on te pc having problem right?'
Well, it would seem for starters.  You need to do it on whatever PC's have an issue.

In Access 2010:
Click on the Database tools tab and open the VBA editor. Then choose Tools>References. Click on the 'asctrls.ocx'  reference. It should be marked as Missing. Then click browse and find it on your computer.
