Access 2007: missing/broken reference 'msado21.tlb'
I successfully installed Office 2007, but when I open a .mdb file created under Windows, I get an error '...missing/broken reference 'msado21.tlb'
Any ideas on how to fix this?
CrossOver Version 18.5 (126.96.36.199742)

I`ve god the same issue.
Please ¿Can anybody found a bit of light for us?
I also have this problem:
Under windows this file is in directoy C:\Program Files\System\ado
I have Office 2007 Access also installed on a Windows 10 computer.
There I took the hole directory "ADO" from the location:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\ADO (msado21.tlb).
and copied this into "~/.cxoffice/<bottle of office 2007>/drive_c/...
When starting an Access application there will by the error message
that msado21.tlb is missing:
Press "Alt-F11", go to "Extras" --> "Links" an there will be an entry
--> Search and select the "masado21.tlb"
Correct approach is to install an added package called "MDAC".
(name is something like Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC)).
When called crossover --> windows software install -> enter
software -> advanced options
there you should select the package and add it.
