MS Access - Wizards

By QPS ·
My wizards don't work? i.e. "Create a report by using a wizard" I double click them, but nothing happens?? Same thing for my Option Buttons, Check Box,and Command Buttons. I can select them on my toolbar, drag to forms, but all it does is creat a button - it doesn't usually take me through a wizard to "build" the commands. Any suggestions?

The toolbar on which you find the buttons has a square with a magic wand. Depress it.

It sounds like the wizards maynot have installed properly when Access was installed. It happened on one of my systems. Try reinstalling access.

Run Regsvr32.exe to Register the DAO Files

Regsvr32.exe C:\progra~1\common~1\micros~1\dao\dao360.dll


Make sure that the Wizards were installed. A "normal" installation may not include the advanced features.

The website you provided I was able to download the Regsvr32.exe file but it requires that I have the sample.ocx file and I do not. The Regsvr~ won't run unless I have that. Wizards are installed.

We've run into that problem when we have Access2000 and Access97 installed on the same machines. We ended up making 2 reg files and creating mini-batch files that run the appropriate reg file when opening Access of either version. You didn't say which version of Access you were running...?

Running Access2000 on Windows 98.

See if you are missing the Acwzmain.mde or Acwztool.mde. If so, they should be on the install CD in the Pfiles\Msoffice\Office\1033 folder, and they need to be copied to the c:\program files\Microsoft Office\Office\1033 folder. If this isn't the issue, uninstall and reinstall the Small Business Tools (use Add/Remove programs for MSOffice Disc 2).
