Missing OWC10.dll version 1.2 Reference

We have a program inherited from an Access 2003 environment that we are trying to enhance in Access 2010. When we load the application we are getting an error:

"Your Microsoft Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file "OWC10.dll version 1.2". I tried to locate this and fix it using the Tools/References menu under the VBA editor, but don't find this DLL (or any DLLs) in the list.

We were actually getting about 5 such messages before we enabled content and made it a trusted program. But this one is still bugging us.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Well first, try un-checking it and see if the app really needs it (do a compile after un-checking).

If you get errors related to that, then you will need to figure out a replacement.  OWC is the Office Web Componets.

There is nothing to check or uncheck - at least not in the list I am seeing. There is no matching name. So somewhere, behind the scenes, the program is looking for this thing and I need to get it to stop.

Thanks.

Open the VBA editor, click tools, then references.   It should be there at the top and currently checked.

It wasn't the same name, but there was a "Missing" item about four down and when we removed it, the problem went away. (Hoping what I removed wasn't something essential, but we'll find that out!)

Thanks!
