When you remove the reference to the "Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library" in Visual Basic Editor, the following message appears:
and you are unable to remove the reference from your project.
Can't remove control or reference; in use
The "Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library" is required by the Visual Basic Editor. The reference cannot be removed.
This behavior is by design of Microsoft Excel 97 and Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition.
The References dialog box allows you to add or remove references to object libraries or type libraries. When you add a reference, your Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications project code can access the objects in the library.
NOTE: After you add a reference to a library, the objects in the library appear in the Object Browser.
