    Weird Error

    Hey guys ~

    I am using the OutputTo action to send a table in my database to a specific folder where it will get pulled by our imaging software for recordkeeping. The problem I am having is that when the OutputTo action runs it creates a generic file instead of the .xls file I selected. It also gives me an error message reading"

    Microsoft can't start the OLE Server.

    You tried to use a form, report, or datasheet that contains an OLE object, but the OLE server (the application used to create the object) may not be registered properly. Reinstall the OLE server to register it correctly.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? As I said it still sends out a file, just not in the right format and that file is viewable if opened with the correct program. Thanks for your time!
