report "too long"

I have a report which has 3 sub-reports in the detail section. Everything
(subforms, detail section) is set to Can Grow and Can Shrink as True.

I have one record in which one of the subforms has about 7 detail items and
the other subforms have several detail items. When I try and print this
record it does not get past "Formating - Hit Control-Break" in the status
line. When I delete a couple of the 7 line items, it prints fine. Is there
something else besides the "can grow" that I am missing? It is as if it
doens't want the report to go to two pages and "hangs up".

Try placing each subreport into a section of its own instead of all 3 in the
Detail section.

In the Sortin'and'grou ping box (View menu), choose the Primary Key field. In
the lower pane of the dialog, choose Yes for group header and group footer.
This gives you 2 more sections that repeat for every record (each primary
key value).

Do that again on the next row of the Sorting And Grouping dialog to get
another group footer for your 3rd subreport.

Place each subreport in its own section.

That should make it easier for Access to calculate whether the entire
subreport can fit onto the page before it has to figure out whether the next
one will fit as well.

Is there a way to redirect on "file name too long" errors? I'm using mod_rewrite to handle all unknown urls with an error page. That's not working for this error. Apparently the "file name too long" error occurs before mod_rewrite is invoked. Setting up an ErrorDocument is also ignored, even though it looks to the user (and listed in access.log) as a 403 error, it's not a normal 403 error.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
