Problem Duplicating Forms in Access 2000

The following problem seems to manifest itself in Access 2000, but I
have not experienced it with Access 97.

When I make a duplicate of a form before I make design changes to that
form that I may want to reverse, it seems to screw up the code for the
whole database. This seems to be caused by some sort of conflict
between the code for the two identical forms.

Obviously, if one doesn't have a recent backup, they have a major
problem on their hands.

Has anyone experienced this behaviour, and is there a way around it?
Why does it seem to manifest itself in Access 2000 but not in Access
97?

Thanks in advance.

I believe that I did this in Access 2000 without a problem. However, I
wonder if it is a side effect of the following article. If it is, I believe
that the vbe6.dll file mentioned in the article is updated in Office 2000
SP3.

Thanks very much Wayne. That was the problem. I think I'll just use
Access XP in future and use Access 2000 to compile the mde if I need
it in Access 2000 format.

Regards.

I've created a small company database where the tables reside in a SQL Server database. I'm using Access 2000 forms for a front end. I've got a System DSN set-up to SQL Server and am using links within Access 2000 to get to the SQL Server tables. My forms worked fine until I made a few minor changes to the database schema on SQL Server (e.g. added a foreign key, or added a column). After that, all the links break - I click on a table...

I'm a teacher using MS Access on an RMConnect 2.4 network. On some workstations both I and my students sometimes get an error message when attempting to insert a command button on a form which reads "Invalid use of null". The remainder of the options in the Command Button Wizard are then unavailable and the button wil not work. The only solution is to log on to a different workstation. Any ideas?

Hi Experts! I have several forms and reports where controls get their values with 'Forms!MainForm!Control' or 'Forms!MainForm!Subform!Control' resp 'Forms!MainForm!Subform.Form!Control' which works without any problem in Acc97, 2000 and 2002, but now in Access 2003 there seem to be a problem with this. A user is working with my app, and he uses an Access 2002 MDE in an Access 2003 environment.

Hi! Recently we, in Norway changed to three different VAT levels. All three needs to be on the invoice program. This is easy obtained via a new field and set the rowsource to valuelist and make the three values : 0;0,00;0,06;0,12;0,25. However my problem is calculating the orderlines and make them be summed in a textbox in the footer of the frmOrderlines.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
