Default Getting common dialog to work (re-install)

I am a newbie here but enjoying working with Access very much. My problem is not with coding (yet!) but with referencing "Microsoft Common Dialog Control V.6" I hope I explain this right? From "Access 2003 VBA Programmers Reference I have the following code to open a Word doc:

Private Sub cmdGoodFaithEstimate_Click()
Dim objWordApp As Word.Application
Dim objword As Word.Document
Dim strFilePath As String

Me.cmdlg.dialogtitle = "Choose File Name and Location"
strFilePath = Me.cmdlg.FileName
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "samples", acFormatRTF, strFilePath
Set objWordApp = CreateObject("word.application")
Set objword = objWordApp.Documents.Open(strFilePath)

' Make Word Visable
objword.Application.Visible = True
Set objword = Nothing
Set objWordApp = Nothing

'instantiate the new object as a word object
Set objword = GetObject("M:\MLa Databases\GoodFaith.doc", "Word.Application")

However the "cmdlg" throws out a compile error. If I understand correcty I should reference the object in VBA but its NOT showing up in to check. In Access it shows up as an Active X control, but registering there has no effect. Is this an error in VBA and can I fix it? I have tried most things suggested on the net. with no results.
Thanks in advance:)
