Unable to locate DLL in office 97

By ideafixer ·
I am running office 97 on a Windows NT 4.0 SP4 machine with the latest service pack of office installed.

When I launch access I get an error "Unable to locate DLL" then when I try to import text I get an error "Active X control cannot be found"
I tried Re Installing.. Un Installing and Re Installing. Re Installing the service packs.. What next?

Does the error message list the DLL file name. If so, do a search of your hard drive for that file and copy it to the operating system directory - ie WinNT.

Are you adding service packs to the office 97 or is this the original install?

If the Dll is not listed, as proposed, the Active X error may mean that MDAC needs installing to allow you to open up some of the components within Access.

I have had the above error in specific databases before and running the MDAC 2.1 set-up (that can be found on Microsoft site) fixes it.

Hope this provides some help.

Jot down the name of the .DLL then go to http://support.microsoft.com/servicedesks/fileversion/dllinfo.asp for info on that DLL. Chances are, it's contained in a CAB file. The tedious part of that is browsing through them to find the right one. Extract that (I recommend WinZip) and you're on your way.

I had similar problem with an app. that would not launch-crying for the Active X control. So I went on the internet & downloaded it. I believe I did a seach for Active X. When I found it I had to download 2 files. Hope this helps.
