Missing or Broken reference to FPDTC.DLL


C

Corbism

I am unable to successfully open an Access 2003 database in Access 2007. I
immediately receive the following error:

Your Microsoft Office Access database or project contains a missing or
broken reference to the file 'FPDTC.DLL' version 1.0. To ensure that your
database or project works properly, you must fix this reference.

I can click OK three times and get into the database, but it doesn't work
correctly. I can't seem to find much about this error.

Anyone have any idea?

I don't have Access 2007 so these steps may vary slightly:

1. In your database window open an existing module (or create a new one).

2. Go to Tools > References.

3. Locate the ticked reference to the missing DLL. Untick it. Press OK.

4. Try compiling your code. If it compiles successfully it was a reference
to a file you didn't need.

I am not sure where to find References. It appears Tools is now known as
Database Tools, but I can't find references. I really do not like this new
ribbon menu.

Open up a code window (Alt+F11). Then Tools > References is available.

That was the key Tom! ALT+F11. Thank you!

OK, I unchecked the box for the missing dll. Things "seem" to be working
ok, but there mention of me re-compiling code earlier in this post? How do I
do that?

It helps if you know your menus. Code window > Debug > Compile.
