MS access inport Proejct user form

I have a form in my projects under VBA in one DB... I would like to import that into another DB for use.  When I try to import the .frm file I am getting an error in a text file of:

Line 2: Property OleObjectBlob in lstSelector could not be set.


How I can import a VBA project form into another DB / VB project that is a separate file?

What version of Access?

You can simply open both databases side-by-side, and simply drag the form from one database to the other

Or use the External Data, Import or Export utility...

Oh, and your specific error seems to point to something being linked to that specific database (that is obviously not in the target database)

So investigate these:
   OleObjectBlob
   lstSelector

Ms Access 2003.... when trying to drag and drop also gives me an error and also an out of memory error.

Not sure where to look for OleObjectBlob.... and I don't see anything linked to the form I created originally lstSelector.

Any other items I can try?

Well then you will have to ask the person who created this object.

It seems like it stores BLOB data, ...

Perhaps there is special code or libraries used on this form object.
You would need those objects in your target DB as well..


But another thing to try would be to just Copy the entire existing db, then delete the things you don't want

I pretty much have started a new DB and just imported tables, forms queries etc.  How can I search for this blob data... I can't find anything releated.  Any other way besides searching the entire proeject with CTRL-F?

As for what is stored in this object, I cant say...
Again, You would have to contact the person who created it..


But you can check the VBA References as a start.

Ok thanks, but wouldn't there be some code associated only with this project form?  Every other item can import into a  new DB... this one form is not able but I'm not seeing any code associate with it.

I'm at a loss buddy,...remember, I don't know anything about this system...

I can only tell you where I think you should look...

You are using the database, don't you have any idea of what this is or how it is used...?
Again, you best bet is to contact the person who designed this system

As experts here with no details on this system other than what you are posting, we are limited as to what we can suggest...
