    Unanswered: Access Crashes Filtering a Linked SQL Table on a date field

    I have an MS Access 2002 application that is distributed to a number of PCs around our office. The data for this application is stored on a central SQL Server that is linked in through ODBC.

    This application has been in place for two years and working fine. We recently formatted and restored a PC, and now that particular PC has issues with the Access application.

    Every time it tries to filter one of the linked SQL tables on a date field, Access goes unresponsive and GPFs out. If it's in a query that is behind a report, I get the old standard 'Catastrophic Failure'. If I open the table and right-click filter or run a query manually, Access GPFs.

    I've tried recreating the ODBC, linking the tables through TCP/IP as well as Named Pipes. Nothing fixes it. All Windows and Office updates have been applied. This is not the first time we've reformatted a PC in the office, but we've never had this issue.

    Has anyone run across this before?

    What is the operating system on the new PC?
    Is is connecting directly to the network?
    What is the SQL Server ODBC driver version #?

    The other thing I would do is find the developer that designed the application in Access and smack him in the back of the head for trying to develop a multi-user application in Access.

    There are many many other alternatives that would work better and be much much faster.
