    Using MapPoint control in MS Access

    "There is no object in this control". "Run-time error '438'. Object doesn't support this property or method."
    These error messages are returned when my form is opened with MapPoint ActiveX control V 11.0 in Access 97.
    I downloaded the example Circus1.mdb and it ran OK without modification. This seems to indicate that there is something wrong/missing in the registry. Attempt to register the control from within Access gets an error message indicating that it is not an OLE control, or requires its own registry program.
    I have not been able to find info on the Microsoft site, except that the error "There is no object in this control" indicates that the control is not compatible with MS Access. Apparently writing controls for MS Access is different from writing them for VB, C, etc. (I have no problem with the control in VB6).
    Could someone provide some insight into this problem?

    Solution?

    Does anyone have a solution for this? I've read that people say mappointcontrol9 is compatible with access 2000 but I keep getting the same errors. When I try to type the properties after the object in code I don't get the mappoint properties in the drop down box.

    Mappoint ocx wonīt run using access

    Sorry mate, but as far as I know, you canīt use the component in visual basic for applications. I was trying to do it during weeks for nothing. I havenīt tried with MP2004 but seems to be the same.

    Good luck!
