A problem occured while Access was communicating with the OLE serveror ActiveX Control

    A friend is attempting to startup Access 2003, but it fails with
    multiple message boxes that report:

    "A problem occured while Microsoft Office Access was communicating with
    the OLE server or ActiveX Control. Close the OLE Server and restart it
    outside of Microsoft Office Access. Then try the operation again in
    Microsoft Office Access."

    He reports that he has to use the task manager to finally rid himself of
    the application.

    My apologies for coming to you with hearsay, but it I think I'm in a
    better position then him to ask semi-technical questions.

    1) Does anyone recognize this as symptomatic of an obvious problem?

    I've done some web searches and see that a number of people are having
    this type of error, but mainly in triggered by particular datasets or
    scripts that they're trying to use. We're doing neither--this happens
    at startup of a "clean" Access 2003 install.

    2) Is there a startup database, or a list of add-ins that are loaded in
    at startup, that we can disable?

    Thanks for your consideration of my specific questions and of the
    dilemma in general.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
