Access Switchboard: Class not registered

Hi Experts,

10 years ago or so, I wrote a small Access app (single user), that I've used regularly ever since without flaws, where I've also used the Access Switchboard.

For 2 weeks now, i've been getting Class not registered on line
Set con = Application.CurrentProject.Connection

This is using the original Acces built-in switchboard f\code.

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Anything changed in your system in the last 2 weeks?
Do you compile the code and compact the DB on a regular basis?

Can you tell us a bit about the conditions under which this error occurs?

I have long since abandoned the Access switchboard because of issues like this, and the inherent complexity.
(VBA Code, Dedicated table, Custom form/control Properties Functions, Limited design changes ...etc)
Twice, I got "confident" and tried to "customize" the switchboard, ...both times I lived to regret that decision...

I am sure there may be a simple solution here, ...
But I have never had a situation where the switchboard manager had an advantage over a Menu system I could create my self.

Just now i did compile, and compact... still same error

2 weeks ago, I was working on another Access file outputting to Excel, the only thing tjhere was that my client has Excel 07 (v.12), and I 10 (v.14), so i Installed 07 on my PC, but it got buggy with 2 Excels, so I removed 07.

I dont knowe if this led to my Switchboard Err.

Looks like you are missing a Reference to ADO ... since the Switchboard uses ADO.

Then this sounds like it may be a "reference" issue.

But this topic is not my specialty...

I am sure another Expert will be along shortly...

I'd run a repair of Office.

"Class not registered" on a regular Access object is more then a reference.

That old switchboard is way overdue for retirement.  See my Access Archon article on a New Style Main Menu for a more attractive and easier to modify version.  Here is a link for downloading it:
