    please help what to do
    i am not programer,

    A problem occurred while Microsoft Access was communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX control.
    * The expression may not result in the name of a macro, the name of a user-defined function, or [Event Procedure]
    * There may have been an error evaluating the function, event or macro.
    I clicked"Help" the following message came out :
    "This error occurs when an event has failed to run because the location of the logic for the event cannot be evaluated. For example, if the OnOpen property of a form is set to =[Field], this error occurs because a macro or event name is expected to run when the event occurs."

    It looks like there might be some configuration files missing.

    Does the second PC have the same Office installation as the first? Where I work, MS Access is not installed by default because it costs more, so sometimes people have incomplete Office packages.
