Hi Neelesh,
Wine is not yet quite ready to support applications like
yours.  There are still a few problems in our COM support.

If you want to help us get Wine ready for
VB/Access applications, you could send a Wine
developer a copy of your application so he could
look at the problems locally.  I'd be happy to take
a first look.
