  Note: If you're distributing this wizard along with your MDE application as part of your runtime application and you experience any problems, try distributing the MDA file as an MDE.


The References Wizard can be used to check whether the references for a database are valid.

This can be achieved in two ways.

1) use the Add-In manager from Tools/Add-Ins to install the Reference Wizard as an Add-In, you can then use the References Wizard in the same way as any other Add-In.

2) copy or move the References Wizard to the MSAccess directory on your hard drive (if you install it as an Add-In as at 1 above then this should be done for you by the Add-In wizard), then call the wzRef_Test function from code as follows, make sure this is the first piece of code run:

'************* Code start ***********
Private Sub Checkref()
  On Error GoTo wzref_Err
  Application.Run "References Wizard.wzRef_Test"
wzref_End:
  Exit Sub
wzref_Err:
  Select Case Err
    Case 2517
      'establish a reference
      Dim strRef As String
      strRef = Application.SysCmd(acSysCmdAccessDir)
      strRef = strRef & "wzref.MDA"
      Application.References.AddFromFile strRef
      Resume
    Case Else
      VBA.MsgBox VBA.Err & ": " & VBA.Err.Description
  End Select
End Sub
'************ Code End *************


If the database references are OK there will be no user interaction, if there are any broken references then the "References Information" form will appear, as if you had run the References Wizard from the Add-In menu.
