unchecking  Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library then click OK
go back and look for Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library and check
then click OK

this will refresh the connection to the libraries

do a debug>compile
correct any errors raised.

On the machine where the DB was developed,  a piece of software exists that provided that control.

 Functions it contains may or may not be used in the current DB, so first thing is to simply un-check it and see if the app compiles.   If it does, your set.

If it does not and you see code related to that control, then you'll either need to remove the code, or install the software that provides that control.
