Access 2000 says 'Setting Up Wizards' constantly after SendKeys action

Im using Access 2000, and something is causing it to say 'Setting Up Wizards' in the status bar. I noticed this was being triggered by a marco off a particular button, and when I went into it, stopping the macro at different points - it was the SendKeys function that was causing this to appear in the status bar.

I was just sending %u - which should cause focus to move to a control that I've set up Alt+U to do this for - and Alt+U works fine, but using the sendkeys function causes 'Setting Up Wizards' to appear in the status bar until I finally close access down. And when I close it down, it crashes and sends an error report. Incidentally, if when using Access I don't trigger this macro, Access closes down fine.

Well, it sounds like a bug in Access to me, just wondering if anyone knows anything about it and how to get rid of it without re-coding. I've got all the latest windows updates etc, and Im using Office Service Release1.

Thanks,
Matt.
