Unanswered: Access is freezing when I try to create an MDE file.
Okay, I've been googling this issue for quite some time and apparently most instances of this occur when dealing with databases that contain vba code, none of which have I utilized in my database.
So, here's what's happening:
I go to Tools>Database Utilities>Make MDE File, create a new file name (I've already backed up my file) and hit save. Then, the screen goes blank. When I try to do anything in Access, I get the hourglass symbol by my cursor. I have to "force quit" the program.
But, the funny thing is that I get a dummy file entitled "db1" everytime.
Has anyone else encountered this? Is there any way to alleviate this problem?
P.S. I've already tried Compacting and Repairing my database, which still lead to the same result.
