    Unanswered: Closing Form - weird one....

    OK this is a weird one....

    I have an Access MDB and one particular form takes a few seconds to close. (For info, if you go back in to the form, it will close instantly).

    However, the same Access MDB which is under SourceSafe control doesn't have this problem - the same form displaying the same data closes instantly.

    Confused? I am. Any ideas anyone?

    Resolved, and it was a little weird.

    What I neglected to tell you all was that in the autoexec macro, we run a routine which updates references libraries (this is because our client does not seem to have a standard machine config). One of the references is to DAO and we programatically remove and re-add the references to DAO each time the mdb is opened. This was the culprit.

    I have no idea what the delay occurs in closing the form and not opening the form. Sourcesafe was a red-herring - for some reason startup appears different under sourcesafe than if the mdb isn't under source control.
