ADP "Connection" dialog doesn't open

ADP "Connection" dialog doesn't open

ADP "Connection" dialog doesn't open

I'm working on an ADP program using Access 2000 that connects to a SQL Server database.  A few days ago, I tried to connect to the database using the "Connection..." menu option under "File" and nothing happened - no dialog window opened.
I tried creating a new ADP using the wizard, again nothing happened.
I tried do a installation repair - nothing happened.
I tried uninstalling MS OFFICE then re-installing - nothing happened.
Is there a registry entry that I need to change?  Or anything else I should try?

RE: ADP "Connection" dialog doesn't open

I stumbled on the solution by reinstalling a microsoft obdc driver.  The function now works correctly.
