It seems this is popping up now and then. You may get to remove Office entirely and install fresh.
While reinstalling Microsoft Office 2000 because of a hard drive crash, I came up with the following error while trying to run Access for the first time (second, third, etc.) under Windows XP (home).
"A problem occurred while Microsoft Access was communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX control.
Close the OLE server and restart it outside of Microsoft Access. Then try the original operation again in Microsoft Access?OK"
Access will not even start without the above error, continuously popping up. Everytime I click OK, Access closes and I need to retart the program. Anyone know how the above can be corrected? If so, please advise.
Please note that I have Office installed on my partitioned E: drive. I ran the Detect and Repair option available in Word (which, by the way, runs fine) but it didn't correct anything.
