Bug: print preview in form datasheet with server filter on crashes access (ADP A2002 SP3)

I've discovered:

Using "File > Print Preview" in a form's datasheet view with a server Filter
crashes access after previewing...

....that is, unless ServerFilterByF orm has been turned off after applying the

See the steps to recreate bug below for details.

I'm looking for a workaround. Possibly some way to trap the print preview
event prior to execution and (temporarily?) reset ServerFilterByF orm to

Please don't say "don't use print or print preview with datasheets". I'm

compose on their screen.
Thanks for any help,

Steps to recreate bug:

While using Access version 2002 SP 3

While running access 2002 SP3
Create a new ADP against Northwind database
Use the form wizard to create a new datasheet form against the Cataegories
table (or any table, probably)
Edit the form properties to set "Server Filter By Form" = yes
Open the form and notice the window title is "Categories : Server Filter By
Compose a search and "Apply Server Filter"
OPTIONAL: Use the form wizard to set "Server Filter By Form" = no
Select "File > Print Preview"
Hit 'escape' to dismiss the preview
Whoa! If you did NOT take the optional step above, you are returned to the
form as though it were collecting a new server filter as indicated by the
window title being "Categories : Server Filter By Form". However, the
problem is worse becuase access then crashes.

If you DID take the optional step (oh, wise one) then you are returned to
the filtered selection of records.

I've upgraded MS-Access 2002 to a MS-Access Project (adp), so now I have to deal with more sophisticated queries (may I call them so?) like stored procedures. I have a form with a combobox for selections and a textbox to enter a certain value. Let us say I call the combobox @select and the textbox @find. The combobox always shows the first of the items to select. Now I want to return a message if nothing is found, or if nothing has been...

I just changed my Access 2002 database to a SQL Server ADP project. I had a form where the user entered a value into a text box and when a command button on the form was clicked a Report was opened.

I have a puzzling form timer problem that I didn't experience prior to Access 2003 (though I'm not sure access 2003 is to blame). Here's the situation: a computer has two access 2003 databases on it, a frontend and a backend. Case 1: If vba code on the frontend updates many rows (360,000) on the backend, a form's timer event (from the frontend) will stop firing until the user gives the form focus. (Note that the update itself always...

I need to be able to print the current form because the form has an embedded object of a .gif file, so report will not work -- does anyone know the way to do this? I tried some code, not sure what it was now, guess docmd.printout or something but that prints ALL the forms -- also the each page of the form does not always start at the next page even if allowcontinuousforms is set to no. The preview button previews all the forms as well,...

On my form I have combo boxes. These combo boxes, after updating them, populate respective listboxes that are located below the combo boxes on the same form.

Hello, I have a form in an Access 2003 application which opens maximized. Its CloseButton property is set to false. On this form I have a command button that opens a report in preview mode.
