Hi all. GREAT new look to the site, BTW!
One of my clients has started getting a "Missing reference" error while running an Access2003 Project I built when she opens it in 2007. It chokes on a call to Environ("Username"). Needless to say this has been working fine in 2003 and it still works fine on my 2007 instance.
Oknow that OWC11.dll is an office dll and my understanding is that Access 2007 shouldn't need to reference it. So what .dll does 2007 use to access environment variables?

if you develop in A2007, the reference will be upgraded to windows 12 versions - and wont automatically adjust for your user.
pen a module, and check for the references showing as missing - scroll down, and pick the windows 11 versions.
re-read this, and realise I misunderstood slightly - but still you ought to check the references.

Yeah, last night I opened the user's version and found the MISSING reference toggled, so I unchecked it and that did it. I have no idea why the reference was there only on her machine but - at least it works now.
Thanks for your reply!
