Microsoft Forms Error

  • I have the old problem of an activex control (mscomct2.ocx) not being available on a target machine. It is not possible to install it on the target machines because I dont know who/where they will be. I can deal with the problem in the code by not using the calendar control and I can find out if the ocx is installed in the event and take appropriate action in the code, but... how do I stop the error message "Could not load some objects because they are not available on this machine" from appearing when the workbook is opened.
    Any help greatly appreciated

    Hi Junho,thanks for the reply.
    My problem is that I cant install the ocx on the target machines. I don't know who will be using the excel file (it will reside on a server) or what they have installed in the way of ocx's. What I need is to be able to stop excel complaining when the file is opened if the ocx is not on the machine. I can deal with the lack of the ocx file by using alternative user forms that don't use and activex controls, I just want to stop the error meesages from worrying the user.
