Unanswered: Added a input mask/can't close or save form
I have a form that is linked to one data table, I'm trying to add an input mask to a field in form design view on the property sheet pane because users of the form dont always enter in the information correctly. I completed the input mask wizard and went back to form view to see if the input mask works and it does but when I close the form it prompts me to save it, I click yes and nothing happens, it doesn't save the new input mask in the form and it doesn't even close the form, the only way the form closes is if i click no when it prompts me to save it. Any Ideas? Thanks
Access 2007, I did some research and i've found out that the form is "broken", even if I change a size of a text box it still doesn't allow me to save changes. I'm thinking about making a new database and copy/paste the form in the new database and link it to the right data table in the new database. I already did a little test and it worked, i was able to make changes and save the form. Any ideas on what brakes a form so this wont happen again? thanks
It's probably corruption, but that doesn't help much. Have a look at the cloning file launcher VBS script in the code bank. This basically re-installs the FE at every launch, automatically correcting corruption issues.
