    We installed access 2003 - before we work with access xp - the program worked
    ok.

    message with run time error. for example there is a form that contain fiels
    in name "ORDER id" and a botten at the "after update" event there is a event
    procedure that reffer to the "ORDER ID" field by using "ME![ORDER ID]" -
    before it work at XP but now I recieved an error : "can't find the field
    "order id" referred to.."

    This should work okay if all you have done is change your Access version
    (i.e. this is actually on the same computer without changing anything in
    Windows.)

    Suggested sequence:

    1. Uncheck the boxes under:
    Tools | Options | General | Name AutoCorrect
    Explanation of why:

    2. Compact the database to get rid of this junk:
    Tools | Database Utilities | Compact

    3. Close Access. Make a backup copy of the file. Decompile the database by
    entering something like this at the command prompt while Access is not
    running. It is all one line, and include the quotes:
    "c:\Program Files\Microsoft office\office\msaccess.exe" /decompile
    "c:\MyPath\MyDatabase.mdb"

    4. Open Access, and compact again.

    5. Open a code window.
    Choose References from the Tools menu.
    Uncheck any references you do not need.
    For a list of the ones you typically need in your version of Access, see:
    http://allenbrowne.com/ser-38.html

    6. Still in the code window, choose Compile from the Debug menu.
    Fix any errors, and repeat until it compiles okay.

    7. If your form has a subform, make sure to include the ".Form" bit in any
    references. More info:
