Try holding down the shift key when you start the database.

Ctrl+G will take you into the Debug/Immediate window. Then click on
Tools on the menu bar and References to view the references.

Do you have any references besides the basic three? Are you sure you
need them? Write down the path and name of the extra ones (or put the
following code in a module and execute the code), delete from the
references list and Compile and Save All. Keep any necessary
references and ensure they are distributed to the target system.

Sub ViewReferenceDetails()

Dim ref As Reference

For Each ref In Access.References
Debug.Print ref.Name & " - " & ref.Major & "." & ref.Minor & "
- " & ref.FullPath
Next ref

End Sub


Sub ViewMoreReferenceDetails()

Dim refIDE As Object

For Each refIDE In
Access.Application.VBE.ActiveVBProject.References
Debug.Print refIDE.Description & " " & _
IIf(refIDE.IsBroken, "Broken", "") & vbCrLf & _
" " & refIDE.name & " - " & refIDE.Major & "." & _
refIDE.Minor & " " & refIDE.FullPath
Next refIDE

End Sub
