VS 2010 replaced Office Object 12.0 with 14.0 - Need 12.0

Is there a way I can get the MS Office Object 12.0 reference back on to my machine? I have tried to reinstall office and it didn't work. Do I need to uninstall Visual Studio 2010 or should I completely uninstall Office and reinstall it?

I am on XP SP3, Office 2007, and, as mentioned, Visual Studio 2010.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I was afraid of that. Have a few add-ins to reinstall. Gotta do what you gotta do, right? Thanks mx, I will give it a shot.

Odd that VS2010 would do that, although I have O2010 and VS2010.

Only thing I can think that would have done that. I have never installed O10. Googled it and EE'ed it and it 'seems' that may be the root cause. I think I could browse for the Access.Interop dll for the 12.0 version and point to it, but I didn't see anything definitive and I didn't want to risk end-user issues.  Only one way to find out I guess is to do what you suggested and uninstall/reinstall. I will do that when I get in to work in the a.m..

Thanks again mx.

Hey mx, that worked. Which is good. Now the bad part; the DB I have been working on seems to crash now. I do an "DoCmd.OutPutTo... Report... formatXLS". It ran fine before, and now it gives me a "Format not available" error and it TOTALLY bombs out in Runtime.

Here is the issue at hand:
