    Post Unanswered: Access XP to 97 Switchboard conversion problem


    I have converted a database that I have created in Access XP to Access 97. I have fixed all problems except for the Switchboard. When i try to access the switchboard it gives me the following error:

    "Compile Error: User-defined type not defined"

    this error is coming up int he FillOptions() function and the following line is highlighted:

    "Dim dbs As Database"

    I've also tried deleting the old switchboard and creating a new one in 97 but I get the same error.

    I'm pretty sure it's a driver issue but haven't been able to figure it out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Make sure you have reference to DAO and try putting DAO. in front of Database. Like:

    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
