hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be happy to try to help

Do the following:

1. Start MS Access 2007.
2. Press Alt+F11 simultenously.
3. Go to Tools > References.
4. Locate the ticked reference to the missing DLL. Untick it. Press OK.
5. Try compiling your code. If it compiles successfully it was a reference
to a file you didn't need.

let me know if this worked

Hello, my name is Jim,

 

Just throwing this possible fix out there for you. The file being referenced 'FPDTC.DLL" is usually a reference to Front Page. Was this created using another system or older version of Access? If so, you can try one of the following:

 

1. You can search your system for the file and, if you can find it, register it in place by typing the following command in the start>run box and click OK:

 

regsvr32 "location of the file"

 

If you get an error on this, try unregistering the file first by typing in the run box

 

regsvr32 -u "location of the file" , then re-register file.

 

2. If you are unable to find the file on this system, you can find this file on the original system (usually located in the one of the following locations:),

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\

C:\Program Files\Office 2003\OFFICE11\

 

copy it to the same folder on this system, then register the file by typing the following command in the start>run box :

 

regsvr32 "location of the file"

 

3. If those don't help, it is possible you need to add the database to Access's trusted list. To do this:

 

a. If there is a Security Alert bar below the Access ribbon bar (at top), click on Options, then Enable.

 

b. (Manual way) In Access, click File>Access Options>Trust Center>Trusted Locations>Add New Location>Browse, then select the location of your database. Once added try using the database again.

 

Please let me know if this was able to help.

Jim,

I am using office 2007, the only options on the toolbar are: Home, External Data, Database tools and Add-ins.

Could not find the dll.

There was no office11

No security bar shown.

Below is what i get when trying to load up the database:

1 There was a problem sending the command to program

2 Then broken or missing ref. to FPDTC.DLL

3 Then shows opening form with compile error in hidden module form. orders by customer

4 then i get a blank screen with the forms showing to the left columb

5 my other database programs work good in Access

Do you think i will be able to fix this or is it a lost cause, getting desperate, ha ha

din't work for me or i am doing something wrong
Microsoft Office Technician: Jim_C_C, Computer Specialist replied 6 years ago

Hello,

 

I am sorry. For Office 2007, in order to open access options, you should click on the circle at the top left corner of the Access window. Then you will see Access options button. then follow the steps to add the database to the trusted list.

 

I was also wondering, when you said that you had a crash, what exactly happened?

 

Another thing you can try to do is the following:

 

1. Open your database in Access

2. Press Alt F11 (Visual Basic window will open)

3. Click Tools>References

4. Find FPDTC 1.0 type library and uncheck it, click OK.

5. Try closing, then reopening the database. If it runs well, then the FPDTC.dll reference wasn't really needed.

 

If there are still problems with that reference, you can try running the Office repair:

 

  1. Start the 2007 Office program.
  2. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click program_name Options.
  3. In the program_name Options dialog box, click Resources, and then click Diagnose next to office diagnostics.
  4. Click Continue.
  5. Click Run Diagnostics.
  6. If a problem is identified, Office Diagnostics may offer to run the repair process.

Other than this, you can try uninstalling/reinstalling the Office 2007 suite for your system.

 

I do apologize if this doesn't resolve it for you.

The database may be corrupt....

Try this, you may want to make a copy of the database first just in case:

  1. Close the current Microsoft Access file.
  2. On the Tools menu, point to Database Utilities, and then click Compact and Repair Database.
  3. In the Database to Compact From dialog box, specify the Access file you want to compact, and then click Compact.
  4. In the Compact Database Into dialog box, specify a name, drive, and folder for the compacted Access file.
  5. Click Save.

If you use the same name, drive, and folder, and the Access database or Access project is compacted successfully, Microsoft Access replaces the original file with the compacted version.
