    I've developed a front end for a database on Excel. It just accesses the database and populates data in the spreadsheet. I deployed it to all of our Windows Vista and Windows 8 users, and it worked exactly as expected. When I tried to run it on our one remaining XP user, the VBA died in process. When I opened up the 'References' tab, where it generally shows "Microsoft ADO Ext. 6.0 for DDL and Security," it prefaces with "MISSING Microsoft ADO..." It looks like ADO Ext. 6.0 isn't compatible with Windows XP; is there an easy workaround for this to make it work on my user's machine?
