Run-time error '429':

By philip_j_rich ·
I get the above "ActiveX component can't create object" error running an Excel 97 macro on an NT4 box. The macro uses ODBC to open a database. The interesting part is that it only fails when I log on as the user. If I log in as the ADMINISTRATOR it works fine. I?ve checked the Registry for the LICENSES and all seems well. I added full permissions on the ODBC Registry items. The macro works on other machines Win95, NT4, 2000 etc. The only other oddity with this box is that it recently changed primary user.

Run-time error '429':

The Dao350.dll file was not properly registered when Microsoft Office (Excel) 97 was installed.

Download RegSvr32.Exe.

and then issue the command RegSvr32 C:\progra~1\common~1\micros~1\dao\dao350.dll

from Start/Run under Win95/NT 4.0.Most of the times, that usually solves the problem. If that doesn't help, then uninstall Office, remove DAO folder under Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft\office, and then re-instal Office 97.

Download RegSvr32.Exe at:

(REMOVE SPACES if they snuck into the pasted URL.)
