"Phantom" report

P: n/a
Hello
I worked with a report some time ago, then deleted it. Now when I
start the database (Access 2003) it informs me that "Module not found"
and opens VBA windows. There in the project frame I see the name of
this deleted report. When I click on it, I get a message that name
misspelled, or refers to a report, which doesn't exist. Fare enough it
doesn't. How can I remove this phantom from the list of objects of the
project? Thank you.

When was the last time that you compacted the database?

I've found that edits reversing and zombie objects returning can be
early signs of file corruption.

You may also want to import all objects into a new file.

HTH,

When you import all objects into a new, blank database,
don't use Select All on the Reports tab, select each report
separately.

Hello
It is just what I was hoping to avoid: importing all objects into a
new database...
Thanks for everyone's answer.
