Unhappy AppCrashes in Access 2010

HELP! I have been developing a fairly simple application for my church and am regularly getting AppCrashes. I've been doing research on the possible causes and have imported all the objects into a new database, made a small change (just adding some filtering code) and it crashes again. I have turned Track Name auto correct off.

I've got a brand new Win7 laptop and don't know whether I should be looking at Access or the OS.

Any clue or suggestion would be much appreciated.

Default What is the issue?

Hello DebbiLawson1,

I saw your post here, thank you for the questions. Specifically, you said

I'm wondering if you can explain the problem in a little more detail? What exactly are you trying to do (i.e. what steps are you taking in Access to get to the crash), and then what actually happens? Let me know and I'll do what I can to help!

Thanks,

Default Thanks for your quick response

It doesn't seem to be related to any code I am doing. I'll be programming right along, things are working fine, and then close Access to make a backup (I've learned to back up frequently) and open it again right away and get the AppCrash error. I go back to the previous back up, do the same modifications, and it works fine.

I've been an Access developer since v2.0, and have known it to crash before, but never with this frequency and seemingly unrelated to anything. Some days I'll get one crash, some every 10 minutes (like today).

For example, today, I was adding a combo box to a form, then adding code behind it to filter. It crashed three times, and the next time I did the exact same code, it worked fine.

I can't force the error, either.

Default AppCrashes

Hello DebbiLawson1,

Thanks for the follow up to my post. Hmm, from your response, I'm really not sure what I can do to help?!? I think the thing to realize here is that if Access is crashing, there is most likely a bug (or set of bugs) in the code that you are hitting (somewhat consistently from the sounds of it).

I know it can be difficult to figure out, but I'm guessing that there is a set of actions you do often in Access that causes it to crash. I too have seen Access crash on occasion (and I know what you mean about constantly have to keep saving in case you hit a crash)...so if you can figure out what those specific steps are, then we should let the Access team know...I'm sure they want to fix any and all crashes in the program!

So, anyway, if there is anything else I can do to help, or if you have particular questions about the Access 2010 Programmer's Reference book (which is actually what this forum should be used for), please let me know and I'll do what I can to help!

Thanks,
