We a moving our Access 2003 applications designed and running on Win/XP to Win7 machines running Access 2010 - 32 bit.  For the most part it's going smoothly but I ran into a reference error in the included routine.  The error:

Error 2455 - You entered an expression that has an invalid reference to property Filesearch.

The error is being thrown on statment
Dim MySearch As Office.FileSearch

This was working fine in Access 2003, Win XP.

I checked the references  on the Win 7 machine and there are no missing or broken references showing.  

What reference am I missing?

Public Sub buildTablesAndTimeStamps()
'
Dim pathAndMDBName As String
Dim MDBName As String
Dim currPath As String
Dim linkedDrive As String
Dim linkedPath As String
'
linkedPath = getLinkedPath
linkedDrive = Mid(linkedPath, 1, 1)
'
currPath = GetProcMDBPath
currPath = linkedDrive & Mid(currPath, 2)
'
ClearTable ("tblCheckTableTimeStamps")
'
    Dim MySearch As Office.FileSearch
    Dim intI As Integer, strList As String, strPath As String
    strPath = currPath   '"C:\"
    Set MySearch = Application.FileSearch
    With MySearch
        .NewSearch    'initialize search (clear old settings)
        .LookIn = strPath   'start point for search
        .FileName = "CI*.MDB"    'file name (takes wildcards)
        .SearchSubFolders = False    'scan folders inside first folder
        .Execute
        
        '.FoundFiles contains the list of filenames found as a collection
        For intI = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
            pathAndMDBName = .FoundFiles(intI)
            MDBName = Trim(Replace(pathAndMDBName, strPath, ""))
            '
            ' Do not add 'Over' tables since they aren't updated every day anyway
            '
            If InStr(1, MDBName, "over") > 1 Then
            Else
                addAuditTable pathAndMDBName, MDBName
            End If
            'Debug.Print .FoundFiles(intI); "       "; MDBName
        Next intI
    End With
    '
End Sub

It will be named something like:

Microsoft Office XX.X Object Library

where XX.X is something less that 12.0, I don't remember what the # was for Office 2003 of the top of my head.

Remember too that the Filesearch object is part of the Office library, not Access, so the machines will need the full version of Office installed on them.

Somehow missed that you were migrating to 2010,  that reference should be to:

Microsoft Office 14.0 Object Library
