I get Error 3048 ("Can't open any more databases")after perfoming multiple requeries on a form in Access 97. The form is based on a query  from a linked table. Requery works a number of times (approx 20) before giving this message.Can anyone tell me why, and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks,
lwoessner

lwoessner,

  It's probably not the requery itself, but something your doing in code in conjuntion with that that is not cleaning up after itself.  Do you have code attached to this form or call procedures?

  If so, check over those routines and make sure your closing anything you open and set all object variables to nothing.  i.e.

  rstMine.Close
  Set rstMine = Nothing

 Access should clean these up when they go out of scope, but it doesn't always do that.  The error message your receiving stems from the fact that Access has an interal limit on the number of open table references that it can address at any one time.

Just noticed that it was databases, not tables.  What I said still applies in regards to the code however.  When you open an ADO recordset, how are you doing it?
