Check to make sure you are not naming your library the name of one of the subs inside of it. If so, change the name of the basic file, compile it and link it, and remake the library with the format below, first.

Try this:

1) Send you current .lib file to the recycle bin.

2) Compile and link the .bas file that will be your next library try.

3) SHELL "LIB [name of library file without period or extension] /NOE"
-remove the [] brackets in the above statement when you insert the name.

(Or at the command prompt: type LIB [name of library file without period or extension] /NOE

4) Answer [name of library file without period or extension] to EACH prompt that appears when the lib command prompts appear:

Example Output:

Microsoft (R) Library Manager Version 3.14
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1983-1988. All rights reserved.

Library does not exist. Create? (y/n) Answer y, for "yes".
Operations:[name of library file without period or extension]
List file:[name of library file without period or extension]

-------------

So if your file name is myfile.lib then you type myfile at those prompts. If you redo the library, without recycling it, you will get a third prompt: Output Library. If so, just type the same response, [name of library file without period or extension] If it fails, you will need to recycle your .lib and start all over.
