Default Access stay in memory with .ColumnWidth property

can anybody explain the fact, when I use .ColumnWidth and ColumnHidden property of controls in datasheet view, it cause Access stay in memory after I close my application? Than I have to kill "msaccess" process by hand. I use Access2000 + SP1 + SP2, Win98SE, Win2K. Thank's for your ideas.


Here is piece of code that I wrote:
(In this example are calls to functions for reading from XML file, but you can use normal values as you can.)

Public Function LoadFormCtrlSettings(frm As Form) As Boolean
Dim ctrl As Control
Dim result As Variant

  For Each ctrl In frm.Controls
   Set oXMLRecordNode = oXMLNode.selectSingleNode("prvek[@Name='" & ctrl.Name & "']")
   If Not oXMLRecordNode Is Nothing Then
    ctrl.Caption = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Caption")
    ctrl.Hidden = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Hidden")
    ctrl.ColumnOrder = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ColumnOrder")
    If frm.CurrentView = 2 Then 'Datasheet View
     ctrl.ColumnWidth = CInt(oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ColumnWidth"))
     ctrl.ColumnHidden = CBool(oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ColumnHidden"))
     'result = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ColumnHidden")
     'result = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ColumnWidth")
    End If
    ctrl.ControlSource = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("ControlSource")
    ctrl.Left = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Left")
    ctrl.Top = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Top")
    ctrl.Width = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Width")
    ctrl.Height = oXMLRecordNode.getAttribute("Height")

    'ctrl.left =
   End If
  Next ctrl

End Function

I'm having trouble with Access and Excel doing this, but it's not just with the ColumnWidth property, it's with several different things.

Thank You, but what do you mean? Which things doing this?
Well, is another way to set up columns in Access data grid? (Without memory leak)

Milan, what John is saying (and correct me if I'm wrong, John) is that it is probably not the column width settings that are specifically preventing your Access from closing.

Both John and I have experienced what you experience but I have never touched the column width settings. It often happens to me when I have a couple of forms open in design view, a table open in design view, and the VB editor open all at once and then I exit Access. Or sometimes it happens when I'm debugging and try to exit Access immediately after a debugging session.

In any case, I don't think you have a column width problem. I think you (and John and I) have Microsoft Access execution problems or Windows execution problems. I use Access XP on a Windows 2000 platform.
