Eurggh! MS has encountered a problem and needs to close, ...

P: 4
An Access 2010 file safely saved, so I thought, and copied but on attempted reopening Access apologizes for the inconvenience without offering any way to retrieve data or form structure (latter is more important here); trying an external data peek from another file also fails. So goes two days development. A record locking file (laccdb)is left behind although work is taking place effectively on single machine (file useless on both my desktop (Windows XP) and notebook (Windows 7).

Anyone know the cause? I was at stage of closing and reopening quite regularly in checking cosmetic changes and minor code adjustments so have no idea how I might have corrupted my program - the last edit was quite insignificant. I suppose this means regular saves to two different filenames and checking both each time - what tedium, and why?

The entire MS office 2007/2010 suite is less stable than that of 2003. I don't know why it is, but I know this same thing has happened to me since upgrading. Look around in whatever folder the application is stored in for a file named "Copy of...". Or look around in that folder for a random file with the .tmp extension.

The .laccdb should be deleteable

Access also struggles to recover from even very short network outages, so the less reliable is a connection to the database file from the machine Access is running on the more likely such problems are to arise. Access across a WAN is highly risky, and across the internet is never a good idea.
