Problem with Access 2007 runtime

3 New Member

I'd created a MDE under Access 2003. It is now under testing stage. Some of the users will use Access 2003 runtime and some will use Access 2007 runtime to run this MDE. I installed the Access 2007 runtime on a test machine and place the MDE in the Desktop for user's initial testing. I did not create a trust area for this MDE in the test machine as well as in my development machine.

When I tested the MDE using /runtime switch in my development machine under Access 2007 environment, all was well. When user tested the same MDE under the 2007 runtime machine, user login is successful; open update form for data input is also successful. However, they encountered the following error when this form tried to create a record in the db via the VBA code under the 'create data' button:

"The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: Syntax error on INSERT INTO statement."

The questions I would like to seek help with are:

1. How can I debug this error in the test machine?
2. Is there a difference in behavior between Access 2007 runtime and the full version with the /runtime swich?
3. Is this error related to the missing trust zone?
4. Is there other issues I must look into when I test the Access 2003 MDE under different runtime environment?

Thanks for your help.

The first thing you should do when creating a runtime version is make sure that every procedure or function has error handling. If you don't handle errors in runtime, you application will lose any variables in memory and probably not recover well.
Given the error message, you want to take a look at the insert statement that is being created. I have to assume that your code assembles a string which it then tries to DoCmd.RunSQL. The easiest way to debug this in runtime is to display your SQL string in a MsgBox before you try to run it.

A client of mine likes some of the new bells and whistles in Access 2007, and is thinking about converting our A03 format MDB to an A07 format file. However, while some of the users have A07, many do not, and it's not clear when they would get it. His thought was to use the upcoming Access 2007 runtime to allow the users who are still running Office 2003 to be able to run the database. While I use multiple versions of Access on my...

So the long-awaited Access 2007 runtime SP-1 was released a couple days ago. I think the process will be to load SP1 for your development copy of Office 2007, then recompile your app, download the runtime SP-1, then create install packages using the new runtime, and newly compiled program files. Question is, what about the back-end db's that are in access 2007 (non SP1)? Typically these are not touched when you release new versions of an...

I wouldn't install the Access 2007 runtime on the same system where Access 2007 retail is already installed because it might cause conflicts. I'd either install it on another pc or install it on a session of virtual pc to keep them separate. Normally you'd use the windows installer cleanup utility to clean up the registry after uninstalling office, but that shouldn't be used with office 2007 products. You may have to revert to a previous...

I have an application in Access 2007. I have split the files and created a distributable package that includes Access 2007 Runtime. The front end is linked to tables in an .mdb file from Access 2003. When I run the application on my computer it works fine. When I run the application from the same package on another computer without Access, the initial form shows, but when I click on a button to get data, I get a runtime error with no code,...

Hello all, I have a problem with distributing an Access 2007 application with the latest version of Access 2007 Runtime.

I have tried setting its value from VBA for a new record, using the form's OnCurrent event, but that does not work either. I have tried...
