Why do I always get 'Invalid Procedure Call Or Argument'? by Sensibilium
Posted: 15 Sep 00

If you are using Package and Deployment Wizard on your Front-End (IE: Tables are all linked) and every time you Package you receive the error message 'Invalid Procedure Call Or Argument' then there is a solution, thanks to:

Article ID: Q252493
On the MS Knowledge Base website.

Basically what it tells you to do, is before Packaging and Deploying, delete all your linked tables first.
Once Packaged, return to your Front-End and Re-Link your Tables.
NOTE: You must re-link your tables in BOTH the packaged front-end, and in the original front-end. The packaged front-end can be found in the 'Support' folder.

After that, close Access, Explore to your Package/Support folder, and Run the associated BAT file to re-create the CAB file. (EG: If the database is Northwind.mdb, run Northwind.bat)

Then Deploy as normal.
