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.
