Post your question to a community of 467,880 developers. It's quick & easy.

Why did Access just close when I tried to save a form

raggle fraggle and so on

Why does this happen? I had just entered some code and when I saved the
form, through the menu option, Access nicely shutdown and lost the changes.
I know, I should save often, but I was on a roll.

But why does it do this. Sometimes when I just close a form in design mode
with the close box it does this. Closes the whole instance of Access.

Anybody got any ideas as it is so intermittent and I can't find anything
about this problem.

Jeff, there are many, many possible causes - anything from a bad graphics
card driver, a corrupted hard disk, a power glitch, or a network problem,
through to a corruption of the database due to one of the many bugs in
Access itself.

It is possible to set minimize the number of times you get bitten though.
Work through each of the issues listed in this article:
Preventing Corruption

After you get past the hardware issues, the first 6 issues in the section
"Preventing corruption during development" are crucial.

oo oooo ooo I know this one.. kinda...

It's a BUG... eeek ruuuuunnnnnnn.....

Really though, it's a flaw in access.. I have never had it happen, but
I do recall reading it somewhere, and I'm sure I read a fix for it as
well.... I remember reading it thinking, man, that would be horrible...
I am horrible at saving my work.. I usually always forget until I'm
closing everything down.. which is usually hours after I started ;)

Anyhow, look it up somewhere.. if I happen upon the link today, I'll
repost =)
