Can't Start OLE Server Error

Guest

Hi,

I am using Access 2003. I have a simple report that I export as an rtf. I
have a macro that runs the report (which is based on a parameter query) and
uses the OutputTo action as an rtf (tried Excel as well). If I set Auto
Start to "YES" I get the following error: You tried to use a form, report,
or datasheet that contains an OLE object but the OLE server may not be
registered properly. Reinstall the OLD server to register it correctly.

What is an OLE server? How do you stop and restart it? I have researched
this topic and one article said to registered all the files in the C:\Program
Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSDesigners98 - which I did. This did
not help. If I manually use the Office Links button - the rtf is created
just fine.

Any ideas?

I figured out my problem. I forgot to put the .rtf extension in the path
argument. I thought that would be automatic.

Problem solved.
