launch Excel failed

I have a Excel spreadsheet to run function and retrieve data from Access 

My Excel is able to launch MS Access, but one machine is failed to run it 

I can manually run the MS Access application and the Excel still can run the 
function and get data.

I would like to run the MS Access application automatically.

what could be problem?
Is it posssible the machine missing some dll?
If yes, Excel can get data from database.

The code is failed when the Excel open ADO connection.

Your information is great appreciated,

 Dim DbPath As String
 Dim MyConnection As String
 Dim MySQL As String
 On Error GoTo Err_Workbook_Open
 DbPath = "D:\MyDB\MyDb.mdb"
 MyConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;"
 MyConnection = MyConnection & "Data Source=" & DbPath & ";"
 MySQL = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tblMyTable WHERE USERID = " & """" & "MyID" & 
 Set MyDatabase = CreateObject("adodb.recordset")
 MyDatabase.Open MySQL, MyConnection, 0, 1, 1

The code failed at "MyDatabase.Open MySQL, MyConnection, 0, 1, 1"

Only one machine fails to open the connection.
It works when I manual to run the mdb.

Thanks again,

Excel crashes
We're running Excel 2003 with SP3 on Window XP sp3. I have a couple users experiencing frequent Excel crashes. One of them even got a report of Excel crashing when Excel wasn't even running. In both cases, when Excel is restrarted, it "recovers" files that they were not working on. Any clues? ~Jason Just a guess...

slow launch
My work laptop is becoming almost unbearable lately. After logon the wallpaper appears immediately but the Taskbar and Desktop icons take fully three minutes before they even appear! Add another two or more minutes for the disk activity to slow down and it can take me at least five minutes after logon to be able to open any application. During this time the disk activity LED is essentially solid on, so something is happening in the background. After everything stops the laptop acts normally and is not slow during use. There is one application, FreeCommander, that once launched ta...

Excel should let you graph every n-th data point in a column
I just want to make the suggestion that you should be able to graph every n-th data point in a set of data on a scatter plot. I have a set of data with thousands of points, and I have a model prediction to match. The best way to differentiate between a set of data and model prediction and experimental data is to make the expermental data points on the graph and make the model predictions a solid line. If you have many expermental data points on a graph, the data looks like a solid line no matter what you do to it. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microso...

Am I trying to do something that Excel cannot handle?
Here is the challenge: 1) On row 3 there are headings: 1st qrt, 2nd qrt, 3rd qrt, 4th qrt, 1st qrt, 2nd qrt., etc. representing subdivisions of calendar years. 2) On row 4, under each quarter heading, there is a sales forecast. The basic assumption is that what is forecast for the quarter must be on hand at the beginning of that quarter. 3) In cell A2: the user enters a leadtime in weeks for obtaining the product. 4) Based on the leadtime entered in cell A2, I want to auto-populate row 5, showing when the product should be ordered. So, if I need 500k pounds at the beginning of qrt 4...
