  • MS Access 2000 VB Code Error when printing a Report

    Recently when attempting to change a Report to a MS Word File Format , I get the following error:-

    "Access cannot complete this operation.The VB code you entered contains a syntax error or the Output procedure is not available....."

    There is more but I'd like to say here that , as far as I'm aware , I was not attempting to enter any VB code but merely doing what I've done countless times after generating an Access Report , i.e. using the overhead button which has previously changed the Report to a Word document format which I can then format and eventually print out.

    One of the solutions suggested is to re-install Access which I would like to do from my Installation Disk.

    However , as it is some time since I've used this OFFICE 2000 Installation Disk , I've forgotten just how to re-install Access alone without going through the whole MS Office 2000 re-installation.

    Could someone here remind me again how to ensure only Access 2000 will be re-installed fron this Disk please.

    Should anyone know any cure for this error other than a re-installation , I'd be gratefull.

    start > run > type "control panel"

    highlight "office 2000 standard/enterprise"

    select "change", not remove...

    when prompted, select "reinstall/repair" and select access and/or any components you would like to restore to the factory fresh state.

    next, next, yes, ok, blah, blah...

    njoy.

      Thanks for the reply James.

      I have already resolved this by re-installing MS Office from my Installation Disk.

      I had hoped to resolve it , as stated in my O.P. , by avoiding this action but , in the end , I did just that - it wasn't to much hastle and it solved the problem.

      Still , thanks for the advice.

      Cheers,
