For those without the runtime you need to use the MOD to create a runtime. Trouble
is it has problems when distributed to sites running different versions of software
and may no longer be available for A2000.

Late binding means you can safely remove the reference and only have an error when
the app executes lines of code in question. Rather than erroring out while starting
up the app and not allowing the users in the app at all. Or when hitting a mid, left
or trim function call.
You'll want to install the reference if you are programming or debugging and want to
use the object intellisense while in the VBA editor. Then,. once your app is
running smoothly, remove the reference and setup the late binding statements.
' Declare an object variable to hold the object
' reference. Dim as Object causes late binding.
Dim objWordDoc As Object
Set objWordDoc = CreateObject(" Word.Document")
