this can be problem of ADO. If you create accesss2000 MDB on computer with different ADO, you can get weird messages about basic VB functions.... install newest ADO and JET service packs (separate download) from www.microsoft.com/data, then create new MDB and import all objects from old MDB.... it should fix it
Thanks you both for your help !
To begin with a reference file 'icmfilter 1.0 Type Library' pointing to location c:\win \ system directory was missing. Once I added it
the program compile was successfull and program ran w/o any errors.
Also I did the conversion onto a latest version of Access2000 with all service packs.
This reference file icmfilter.dll does not seem to be a part of Windows2000 or Access2000 setup and also doesn't have to be present
in the ...\system folder. As long as its in the application folder works ok. Need to do some research on this dll perhaps it is required for Extra Attachmate (emulation app) that this program launches. Inheritance comes at a cost I guess.
For now the program is up and running and powers to be are happy.
Thanks so much. Have a nice day/evening.
