    Hi all,

    At my work we run Office 2000. Recently I had to install Project 2003 on my
    PC for a special project. Everything seemed fine - until I added a new
    function (using CommandBar) I set the reference on my PC for Office 11.0
    Object Library and of course every one else doesn't have Office 11.0 Object
    Library, they have Office 9.0 Object Library. I don't have the option on my
    PC to choose Office 9.0 Object Library - so I got around it by logging on to
    another PC and resetting the reference there, recompiling, re-creating the
    MDE, and redistributing it. This was a real pain in the butt for the user,
    who had to wait for me to finish up at his desk so he could continue
    working.

    I was wondering whether there is any way to set my PC up to allow me to
    include older library references, rather than having to log into a PC which
    has ONLY the older references. Other than Project, all my other Office apps
    are still 2000 (9.0)

    TIA,

    Susan

    Before someone yell that this is an ACCESS Group, the problem is in Access
    development, not Project

    Try using Late Binding so that you don't need to set a reference at all.

    Tony Toews has an introduction to the subject at
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/latebinding.htm

    (BTW, the answer to your question to your specific question as to whether
    it's possible to set your PC up to allow you to include older library
    references is "it depends". Some references can be chosen regardless of what
    version of Access you're using, but others are specific to the version of
    Access)

    Thanks Doug - I'll look into Tony's article.

    In the meantime, to look at the "silver lining" aspect, it's more ammunition
    in the fight to upgrade my users to Office 2003

    ;-)
