Hi Listers,

The latest version of Office 365 has recently been installed on my machine
(Version 2212 (Build 15928.20216 Click-to-run).

Since then I have started getting errors when I link to SQL tables without
using a DSN (basAttachDSNLessTable).  The error is 3125 – "dbo.tblGroup is
not a valid name. Make sure it is a valid parameter or alias name, that it
does not include invalid characters or punctuation, and that the name is not
too long".  I get a similar error for several different databases doing the
same thing.

I am wanting to revert back to a previous build of Office to see if this is
the problem but am having trouble finding out how to.  I think the one I
want is Version 2212 (Build 15928.20198) from Jan 4.

One website suggested this:

To rollback Office to one specific version, you could also try to run
following command.
Such as "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft
shared\ClickToRun\officec2rclient.exe" /update user

This was from Dec 2021.  But according to this page
-apps-by-date) the version numbers around that time were Version 2111 (Build
14701.20262).  So I am not sure how that translates to something like

Any pointers?
