    Recently, I upgraded my computer hardware and did a clean install. After
    installing Office XP (I have been using the same copy of XP for the last
    four years), when I'm using the wizards in Access (Linked database manager,
    command button wizard, etc.) a box opens telling me that DAO is being
    installed, then it fails because it wasn't able to fing DAO. I tried
    reinstalling Access again with no success. This happens everytime and
    although I can cancel it with no troubles, its getting to be annoying.
    Meanwhile, is there a way to change the way that Access adds default code?
    I dont like the naming conventions Access uses for declarations and error
    handlers, besides some of the code it uses is old and even in the help file
    says to use updated code. Thanks.

    Make sure you are logged in as a local administrator (not a limited user.)

    Search the hard disk to find the file dao360.dll.

    Open your database, and deselect the Microsoft DAO 3.6 library (Tools |
    References, from a code window.) Make sure Access is not running.

    Unregister this file by opening a command prompt, and entering something
    like this line:
    regsvr32 /u "c:\program files\common files\microsoft
    shared\dao\dao360.dll"

    Restart, and then register the library again:
    regsvr32 "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\dao\dao360.dll"

    Open your database, open a code window, choose References from the Tools
    menu, and select the library again.

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!
