    Red face Unanswered: Access 2003 - Can't connect to OLE server or ActiveX

    I created few programs using Office XP, all are in Access 2002 format.
    I got now a new PC with Office 2003.
    When I start any of the programs, I receive the message:
    "..... Can't connect to OLE server or ActiveX"
    It also happens when I try to open a form, only few forms does open with no errors.
    I checked the refferences, no one is MISSING.
    I uninstalled Norton anti-virus.

    Thanks in advance

    It sounds like you are missing some activex controls that your database requires. You will only get a missing reference when you use VBA to control the activex control object.

    Open each form and look for a control that is blank, but should contain an activex control - typical issues are the missing microsoft common controls
