Your Microsoft Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file ‘OSAMAXA.dll’ version 1.0.

Hi
When trying to open an access file, I am getting below message.

If I click OKAY on this, I get further pop-ups with similar type of messages.
Only the dll name is changed.

I guess, this is about missing dll, but not sure, also how does I fix this.
Can anyone please tell me what does this mean. Thanks.

Try the steps described here first:

(if the broken references are needed then it's enough to untick them. If they are needed you will need to figure out if they can be re-ticked! Sometimes that is possible if you can browse to their new location or just clicking on a new version of the same dll). Normally this wouldn't be a problem except after moving to new machine, updating to new versions of programs, or (sadly) when applying windows updates although that is fortunately rare and it's generally a good thing to keep your windows system up to date.

Thanks for the help xenou sir. Am checking this and will revert with details.
Have a nice day ahead. :)

PS - sir, my reference button is disabled (grayed out).
Not sure how to change this. Could you please guide if you get time.

Solved, option is available now.
