    If Access worked OK previously, it has nothing to do with Access, but you very probably have some important DLL file wrecked on your system. It can happen for many reasons, but very often the reason is new software.

    Did you recently install any new software? It happens relatively often with shareware/freeware. Because of improperly made installation packages, this kind of software often installs its own versions of system DLLs without any warning. When you deinstall it, everythings looks like before, except some DLL's are left messed up and software that previously worked perfectly well suddenly doesn't work anymore. There is a name for it: "the DLL hell".

    Unfortunately, in most cases the only cure is to reinstall Windows.

    Thanks for the info and yes you are right the DLL from hell. It looks like a reload will probably happen. I don't want to burn anymore time on this. Thanks
