Access crashes except when stepping through code

P: 2
I found a post on here earlier regarding this problem and there was no solution. I don't necessarily have a solution, but I came across a workaround in my instance. I found that Access would crash when I opened certain reports (not all - the only pattern I could find was that these reports contained subreports).

I had recently changed the options from tabbed windows to overlapping windows. I changed it back and "Voila" all was healed.

Obviously there's not a lot of detail here, but it sounds like the reports were probably built in Access 2003 or earlier and are crashing in Access 2007 or later. If that's the case, converting the DB from .mdb to .accdb will probably fix that issue.

No, everything was built in Access 2007 from scratch, as an .accdb.
