Question Excel calling Access

I've got an Excel application that opens an Access database (set db = ...) and runs querys (qry.execute). I keep getting the warning msgbox "Microsoft Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action". However, when I press OK the program continues normally and produces the right results. It's not a trapable error so I don't really how to handle or supress it. Any ideas? Other ways I could run the query?

Default Re: Excel calling Access

Suniel, I've recieved the same error when I use Excel to run ReflectionX. I get the error when Reflection requires input or generates its own error, Excel keeps waiting for the expected response. I set Reflections visible property to true so I can see what's going on. If you can't see the Access DB you might try the same. Good luck.
set db = .....
db.visible = true
