Bart,

Amazingly enough, the solution to this problem is to 1) shut down every
possible program on your system when you wish to create your MDE, or 2)
buy more memory. Please note that you must also install said memory -
simply purchasing it will not do the trick.

If neither of these solutions takes care of your problem, you may need
to discharge the static electricity buildup in your CPU. The steps for
doing this are as follows:
1. Make sure your computer is turned on and your monitor is turned off.
2. Hold your computer about 10 inches above the desk surface. Keep a
firm grip.
3. Drop the system onto the desktop. Make sure it lands flat and not to
one side.
4. Repeat Step 3 15-20 times, then check to see if your static
electricity buildup is gone. If not, repeat Step 3 10 more times.
5. Read BOFH.

I suggest you do not follow Steve's instructions.

Generally, problems in making MDEs are the result of compilation errors in
your MDB. Go into the MDB's module windows, and Compile. Fix the errors, and
see if that takes care of your difficulty.

Yes, I suggest that you don't actually follow my suggestion as well,
except the part about getting more memory or closing open programs. If
you're getting an error about insufficient memory, chances are good
that your system does not have enough memory to make the MDE. You may
want to try making the MDE on another, better machine before spending
money on new RAM, though.

You may want to read BOFH anyway, for kicks.

Most "out of memory" errors on Windows are not about insufficient
RAM, which because of virtual memory and swap files is incredibly
hard to use up, but because of resource problems. It can also be
caused by corrupt files causing a process to go into a loop that
uses up memory.

This latter is the more likely scenario, and is the reason Larry
suggests compiling the MDB before attempting to create the MDE.

Your suggestions betray a lack of understanding of both Windows
hardware/software and Access MDEs.

Betray? Display perhaps.

First of all, I've made it no secret that I do not understand or work
with Access MDEs.

Second, nearly every 'out of memory' or 'insufficient memory' error I
have ever gotten was actually a result of the system running out of
resources. Perhaps your version of Windows was programmed by more
malicious Microsoft coders than mine who one day decided to switch all
the error messages around so you'd never really know what the true
problem is or how to fix it.

To quote you:
"It can also be

Uses up memory? Yes, that sounds like something that would cause an
'out of memory' error...because it's using up all the memory available.

Your response indicates a lack of proofreading.

BTW Steve I was in no way agreeing with David in my response, merely
pointing out an example of poor diction. No-one is perfect, some people
need to tell themselves that more often.
Jan 4 '06 #8

P: n/a
Understood, Keith. My own obsession with language and its use causes me
to do the same thing.

With a bit of irony I was about to point out that 'diction' is usually
practiced in a verbal sense, but that it technically applies to both
the written word and the spoken one. Touché.

It occurs to me now that the word he may have been searching for is
"portray" but I guess we'll never know as I'm in his killfile ;-)

While David seems to have quite a bit of knowledge to share on the
topic of MS Access, the allegations that have been brought out
concerning a pedophilic appetite for underage males cause me to be very
careful of accepting information from him at face value. I realize that
that Access and the personal life are two very distinct areas for most
people, but to me the allegations about David's personal life seem to
overshadow his contributions that aren't strictly about Access.

David, you are welcome to put me in your killfile; I will still be able
to read your posts, which works for me as the knowledge seems to flow
much harder from your side than mine.

Note that I do not intend to hijack this post, nor am I making any
accusations.

You are a fucking asshole. SO he's not diplomatic when he trashes you,
there's no need to be a total ass pick from some dark hole.

That's what I said. That's what you *didn't* say. You said to add
RAM. RAM has nothing to do with resources *except* when extremely
limited (like 64MBs).

Uses up memory? Yes, that sounds like something that would cause

available.
An infinite loop is not going to be resolved by adding memory unless
you add an infinite amount of RAM.

I beat you to the PLONK.

I had been wondering for several days who this STEVE was, I had
first thought it was perhaps PC Datasheet attempting to launch a new
identity, free of the old associations, but the responses were too
stupid. I then started thinking it was possibly another Don Mellon
sock puppet.

The pedophile reference pretty much proves it, as the only person
who has shown an interest in that subject in these precincts is Don
Mellon.

Sometimes profanity is the only way to express what needs to be
said.

If profanity had no utility, it never would have been invented.

Compact Oxford English Dictionary

betray

· verb 1 act treacherously towards (a person, country, etc.) by
revealing information to or otherwise aiding an enemy. 2 be disloyal
to. 3 unintentionally reveal; be evidence of.

I had to read and re-read your post to understand what you were
implying as David's sentence was perfectly clear to me. I use [betray]
= [be evidence of] quite often. It is something I grew up with, like
[to spleen against], or [boo-ee (buoy)]; is it merely local usage? As
David uses it and Oxford lists it, I think not.

Eh, I came back to apologize and here I'm already killfield. OK by me.

My name is actually Steve. The only reason I made the pedophile
reference is because of content posted to another newsgroup that was
supposedly taken from David Fenton's own post. I tend to disbelieve
most things of that nature, but the content posted was so disgusting
that I have to at least consider the possibility that it is true, if
carefully.

David, though I haven't attacked you, I do apologize for even writing
the post. I let my own foul mood get the best of me and it came out in
the form of poor judgement. Whether or not you killfile me is your
business. As I said before, most of the knowledge posted by you
supercedes my own, so that information flow will not change.

I'm a former army officer - believe you me, profanity is a wonderful
thing that saves me from having to think about adverbs and adjectives,
but I've found in my 14 years of civilian life it tends to upset
people... 8) When I do get involved in a project with another former
tanker it's wonderful to be able to swear like a soldier again without
having to worry about causing offense...

It's also an accusation based on a complete falsehood that has been
refuted many times, and not just by me.

This is clearly a Don Mellon sock puppet again. Killfile him and
ignore him and all will be well for everyone.

By your logic, anyone who is not a judge cannot speak/post. Therefore,
unless you were elected the new judge, you must abide by the same
restriction.
