    Unhappy Unanswered: Access Totally Crashing

    HI All,

    No matter what database I open, as soon as I open a form, or click any command, access crashes. It was working fine earlier, and then bam, all of the sudden it does this. Same computer, no new updates to windows 8. I'm running access 2007. I've tried it on other computers. What went wrong here? I really don't to have to restore this machine. I tried reinstalling access, no success.

    what happens if you start a new clean database from scratch

    I would expect the problem is a rogue DLL or other incompatability, andyou will probably have to completlyh uninstall Access, reboot the computer then re install, then apply any patches to get i up to date

    check if any addons or extensions are causing problems

    make ceretain there's no autoexec macro's, by pass openign any forms using the (is it the F8 key or shift key)
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    I had a laptop that did this. I uninstalled, reinstalled. SAME crashes.
    Something in the OS did not like it.
    We swapped laptops and it worked fine.

    You've tried it on other computers...AND???

    Same problem?

    No problem?

    Is this a one off app, i.e. is it non-split, being run on a single machine, or is it being used in a multi-user environment? If the latter, has it been split, with the Tables in a Back End, on a shared drive, and a copy of the Front End (with everything except the Tables) on each user's machine?

    Linq ;0)>
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!

    Access Totally Crashing: Solution

    "Hi Benz,

    1) Try re-storing the database in someother system and check
    2) Try upgrading the access version and import data to it.
    3) Go to VBA code, from Debug Menu, compiling the codes and check for a successful compilation*
    4) Try Compact and Repair database
    5) Check if any missed References in Tools Menu
