AC2007 - Report 'Close Print Preview' button not working

P: 13
I've developed a product pricing application for a client in AC2007.

They enter all the data on the one main form, then click a button to open a printable report in Print Preview.

My problem is, once in Print Preview, the Close Print Preview button on the ribbon doesn't work. It's there, it just does nothing when I click it. To close the report you have to press Ctrl+F4.

This is bad, but worse is I can't even put a message on the report telling the user to press Ctrl+F4, as they view it in Print Preview mode, so I can't have a label with Display When set to Screen Only, as they don't see that in Print Preview.

It's a very standard report, quite a few fields but no calculations involved, it gets all its data straight from a precalculated table. There's nothing I can think of that would be causing strange behaviour. I've got another report in the system, and that closes fine.

I get the same behaviour whether it's an accdb or accde.

Any ideas where I might start finding out what's causing this?

All I can suggest is to try to find somewhere that lists known bugs (features) of the new Acc2007 software.

Some MVPs publish lists as a feature on their sites. I'm afraid I can't think of anything more helpful.

Problem solved by copying everything to a new report. The usual answer to Access' flakiness!

Oh that one!

I should do an article on "How to Avoid Corruption with MS Access". A fairly short one - "Don't use it." :D

This was not really funny or helpful. Just sayin'.
