In the A2007 case, do you see this in References (see image) ?

Are these two different machines - that is, you're opening Access 2003 on MachineA, but Access 2007 on MachineB?

First thing to do is insure you actually need that reference (in most cases it's not needed). Make a copy of the database, then do this:

1) Open the VBA Editor.
2) Click Debug - Compile. Fix any errors you find, and continue doing this until the menuitem is disabled.
3) Now click Tools - References. Remove the reference to OWC10.dll
4) Now compile again.

If you get no errors in Step #4, you don't need the reference. If you DO get errors, then you almost certainly need that reference. If so, then you'll have to install the OWC10 files on the 2007 machine. This should do it, although I'm not 100% sure:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=7287252C-402E-4F72-97A5-E0FD290D4B76&displaylang=en

It's referenced for 2003, but is a standard exe file, and should install the items needed on the 2007 machine.

Note that if your target platform is Windows 64-bit, all bets are off :)
