2262 - Stream does not exist: [2]. System error: [3]

Like message "2228", this message is typically produced if a table doesn't exist, see that message for more information.

The error code is typically "-2147287038" which is a COM error code to indicate it could not be found.

Example of Creating Tables Safely

<$TableCreate "Class"   ExistingOK="Y" DropExisting="N">
<$TableCreate "TypeLib" ExistingOK="Y" DropExisting="N">

The "ExistingOK" and "DropExisting" parameters were added for safety, we are doing this step because the tables don't exist however you may some time in the future add code which may create it and you would not want to lose its contents.
