There isn't enough memory to update the display when try to open Access Report.

On one of my users Pc I got error when try to open report:

There isn't enough memory to update the display. Close unneeded programs and try again.

the rest of the Access functionality works fine. Also the application works fine on other PCs. I changed the virtula memry on that pC and it did not help. the conventinal memory on trouble PC is almost the same that I have on mine where application works fine.

thank you in advance for your help,

Have you Checked for viruses. You may want to check for background programs that could be stopped to gain more resources. Which operating system does the PC use?

Hey DDB!

 set your virtual memory paging file sized to a minimum and a maximum of 3 to 4 times the amount of physical ram

After you check the above you might want to consider:


a. open MSConfig and disable any startup programs you dont need then reboot
c. Run Spybot search and destroy
b. check your physical ram (swap it out)

but before you try those read this link, it appears to apply to forms in A2k however there many similaritys between forms and reports that are handled internally with the same methods I think.

When all else fails if the problem is definately not related to the above issues, a leaky program will often be the cause for this error, basically memory gets dirty after opening and closing the errant program alot, or by leaving it running while it leaks memory that the OS cannot reclaim for the User GDI.

I just had the same problem on a PC here. I opened up sysmon and there was plenty of free memory, so I thought it might be talking about video memory. Tried upgrading video drivers and replacing the video card and neither worked. Finally the link jobrienct posted worked. It is a flaw in office 2k that was fixed with a service pack.


Thanks.
