    Thank you for that information. I followed the
    instructions and was able to register the file. But now I
    have another problem, and perhaps I should have considered
    that before I proceeded. At the present time I have
    Access 97, Access 2000, Access XP, and now Access 2003
    installed on my computer. After I registered the DLL as
    instructed, when I try to start Access 2003 I get
    the "Preparing to install" dialog box. If I click Cancel,
    Access will open, but I still cannot see the list of
    tables in the Linked Table Manager. Yes, I know, I need
    to remove some of these older versions, but if I do I'm
    not sure what problems I might encounter.

    Another question. The reason I was told to update to
    Access/Office 2003 is because our IT department is moving
    all of our computers to Windows 2000. And as they do
    this, they are installing only Office 2003. The databases
    will run, and all of the calculations seem to be correct,
    but some of the columns in the reports are not being
    spaced properly and some of the numeric formatting is
    missing. I can run the reports on my computer in any of
    the versions (except 97, which I don't use it at all
    anymore) and the reports format properly. But I have all
    of these different versions on the computer that I am
    using to print the reports. Am my dealing with some
    missing font issues, or what?
