Clicking save icon in form design closes Access

P: n/a
Using A2000

When I click the save icon in form design, Access closes immediately. No
warning messges, nothing.

This happens on only one form. I deleted the form and recreated it. I could
save the new form as Form1 but when I renamed it to the origianl forms name
and click the save icon, Access closed.

The form is based on a table that has several combo boxes. FWIW the table is
named something like Items1. There is also a table named Items.

I have run compact and repair and decompiled on the database an it didn't
fix the problem.

I have never seen this before.

I started a new mdb an imported everthing from the old mdb.

That seemed to fix the problem.

I created a new form and could save it.

But I change the form to print in landscape (and removed the record
selectors and navigation buttons) and the problem came back.

I repaired Access and deleted and recreated the table used by the form and
it still bounces me out of Access when I hit the Save button (or click File
save)

Any ideas on what is causing this? I'm totally stumped.
