MS Access 2010 Registry Issues

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -



Recently, I have uninstalled Office 20017 and installed Office 2010 with a separate version of Access 2010. Now I can open MS Acc2010 DB but when I try to open legacy DB written in 2007 I get the following error message. What could be the cause of this error? How can I overcome this problem? Help me to fix this.


Thanks in advance.

Error: Your Microsoft Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file ‘MSSTDFMT.DLL’ version 1.0. *To ensure that your database or project works properly, you must fix this reference. Also when I try and open the references section from the menu bar i get the following error message as well. Need assistance.

MS Access 2010 Registry Issues


Hi Marsh,

The problem seems to be connected to Visual Basic. Your project uses a file that seems to be missing after the upgrade. Try the below steps:

  1. Open visual basic editor in the database (Alt+F11). Select Tools > References. You might find few items in this box that begin with MISSING keyword. Uncheck the items, close the db and open it to see if it works
  2. Re-install office
