I've created a form in MSAccess for Win95--nothing fancy, just a couple of buttons to go
to next record, open pre-defined forms, etc.  Suddenly all of the buttons have stopped
functioning, and report a compile error.  Each control was created using the control
wizard, so it shouldn't be coding (and the code is still there).  Am I missing a patch, or
should I wave dead chickens?

Thanks much,

Michael M Murphree

Have you tried opening the form's module and compiling? That uwually pinpoints the problem.

Did you rename any tables involved in the form and controls?

...I kind of like the "wave dead chickens" approach, though.

Do you make any change in the fields of your tables?

It's probably you change a name and the access doen't compile the database, and give you this error, so try to check every control in the form, and see if the controlSource has the right reference.
 
I hope this help you!

I have had this problem before. It usually occurs when there has been a code procedure set up which has been either replicated across different objects, or relevant objects have been  renamed. It also occurs when a macro is replaced with code.

Unfortunately, I couldn't fix it unless I deleted off the objects and recreated them.
