We have a relatively large database using Access 97 (Large meaning several hundred tables and queries) and frequently have to use the /decompile switch when modifying the code to get around the "General Fault Protection Error". Without this 'little known' feature, we would have been dead in the water long ago.
We are now considering migrating the program to Access 2002, but that feature doesn't exists. Does anyone know if that's because it's no longer needed in 2002 (Microsoft did a better job) or if they simply left it out?
Our concern is if we upgrade and run into the same "General Fault Protection Error" which throws you out of Access, there is no recovery.
