Unanswered: Why do some users/computers get a run-time error '2501' and others don't?
A department at my company uses an Access DB file with some forms to do some reporting. The Access app runs on everyone's computer except for one person's computer. The problem is more interesting because the problem doesn't occur if I log into his machine and run the Access app.
So the problem is that, on this person's profile, they can't run part of the Access app. All of the other parts work. I can also run the Access app on my machine, and other machines in my IT department. Lastly, he can run the Access app from my machine logged in as himself.
My machine and the user's machine are the same (Windows XP 64-bit with Access 2003). The application also works on different combinations of Windows XP 32-bit, Vista 64-bit and Office 2007.
Does anyone have any idea why a profile would cause this issue, and how to fix it? Thanks for your time. I will check in on Monday.
Delete and recreate the profile? Sometimes it's just easier.
Try creating a new profile on that system and if that is ok, then just go forth and multiply... I mean trash the profile and re-create it.
BTW, what is a RTE 2501? lol
I think run-time error '2501' is a generic error code, but underneath the error code it says "OpenReport action was cancelled", if I remember correctly. I will consider blowing away the whole profile as a last ditch effort, but a lot of these users have a lot of preferences and things that are tied to their profile. I guess I was hoping there was a way to just wipe out their Access related profile settings.
