Error 429 ActiveX component can't create Object

My Access 2003 Application send text to Outlook to send as an Email Message.

The version of Outlook on this particular computer is 2013.

The VBA command Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") has always worked fine until now when suddenly it triggers an Error Message:

'429 ActiveX component can't create object'.

I have attached a screen shot of the References.

Anyone has an idea what to do?

Yup.
I've got an article about that
http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/17466/Properly-open-Outlook-as-an-Application-object-in-VBA.html

If Outlook is open
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
 will throw an error
If Outlook is closed this
Set objOutlook = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
will throw an error

While you can throw this in
On Error Resume Next

That's just evil, because it just ignores all errors and then, if you do have a problem, it makes debugging a bitch.

Read the article, and come back here to ask any questions you have about it

Interesting, but I have had situations when I got a message asking to open Outlook and allow input to Outlook for 1 (or 2 or 3 minutes from a dropdown).

But in this particular Application and on this Computer until now, this code worked only if Outlook was already open!

However I will try the stuff in the article (after I have a stiff drink) and let you know.

Thanks for the help!

If you have anti-virus and it's up-to-date, you can get Outlook configured so that
I got a message asking to open Outlook and allow input to Outlook for 1 (or 2 or 3 minutes from a dropdown). doesn't happen anymore.

That wasn't possible for Office 2000 SP3 through Office 2003.

But the 429 error, well that's eternal.

I have been working on your solution.  No final resolution yet, BUT I did solve the problem by replacing Access 2003 with Access 2007 and there is no more Error 429!  Go figure......
