Hi,

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?

MacOS 10.13.6.
CrossOver Version 18.5 (18.5.0.31742)

Thank you!

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
"not available".

--> 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.
