Cannot view Treeview controls in Access (2010) after upgrading to Autodesk 2015 and VBA 7 (previously Autodesk 2013 with VBA 6)

Hi,

I have an Access database and it consists of few forms. When I try to view a form which has a tree view control in it, I get "There is no object in this control" error.

This machine previously had Autodesk 2013 (VBA 6) installed,  and later upgraded to Autodesk 2015 (VBA 7.1)

It is a Windows 7 (Professional) 32-bit operating system

It is very much appreciated if anyone can help me to fix this issue.

Thank you

There is no 64 bit version of the MSComCtl in VBA7 and hence the Tree View control is deprecated as per this MSFT article:

although Jamie is correct, you don't indicate whether you are using 32 bit or 64 bit Office.  Since 32 bit Office will run (and is actually recommended by Microsoft) on 64 bit operating systems, I would encourage you to use the 32 bit version of Office if you can.

I would bet that the update modified the files on which that treeview library depends, which renders your app unusable.

Get rid of the treeview, or use something like this: http://www.jkp-ads.com/articles/treeview.asp or use a valid 3rd party control like the Bennet-Tec TList: http://www.bennet-tec.com/btProducts/TList/TList.htm or DBi-Tec's ctTree; http://www.dbi-tech.com/ComponentPage_ctTree.aspx. I've used both of the last two, and they work well in my limited testing.

Hi,

Thank you for all your comments. Error occurred due to an incorrect version of  MSCOMCTL.OCX.  Everything worked ok once I replaced that file.

It was due to an incorrect ocx file in the system.
