    Unhappy Unanswered: Command Button from Toolbox errors

    I ran a "Detect and Repair" on a database. This brought up the message that, "'Detect and Repair...' will automatically find and fix errors in this application. During this process you may be asked to provide the installation source and/or exit open applications." I left the box checked by "Restore my shortcuts while repairing (No good reason).

    This kicked off the Windows Installer.

    At the end of the process I received the message, "You must restart your system for the configuration changes made to Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Professional to take effect. Click Yes to restart now or No if you plan to manually restart later." I answered "Yes" to reboot my machine.

    Upon creating a new database, creating a new form in that database and clicking on the Command Button Tool in the Toolbox and drawing a Command Button on the form, I receive the following error:

    (Messagebox Title Command Button Wizard error

    Compile error. in query expression 'AppLoadString([bw_tblBtnActions].[Description])'

    I've reapplied the Office SP3 Update and still receive the error. Any ideas how to resolve this problem? I appreciate the help !!!

    Cool The Fix

    FYI - Since I couldn't resolve the problem any other way I decided to uninstall Office and then re-install it. After doing this, the problem still exists for databases created while the problem existed, but new databases created after the new installation are fine. Because I only created a single "test" database while the problem existed, this fixes the problem for me. Objects could probably be copied into a new database to fix this for folks out there that have critical databases created with this issue.
