Referencing Word Object library from Access

Last Modified: 2019-12-05
Hi All
I have an Access 2007 frontend running under Access 2016 runtime and it works just fine. Recently the backend was move to a google drive without any problems. Then the IT guy looking after the network decides to move Office Std 2007 to the google drive, I now have problems. The Word Object library is no longer available so the access mail merge routine within Access FE fails. The question is this how do I within vba Tools References point to the Word Object Library?

Or is there another way of referencing the above Word Object Library?
