Ms Access 2003 Runtime error 2106 - 1 error found -> form won't open not even in design mode
Posted on 2006-05-08
I've got a little problem with an access 2003 database.
it started i believe after a crash of the database itself i now have a form that i can't get access to anymore it keeps saying runtime error 2106 - 1 errors found and a message saying that this could have something to do by using activex objects that access doesn't recognize. The wierd part however is that i'm just using standard controls from access and no extra controls. There's no way to get the form back and i placed the form from a backup of my database back then it worked again however after some editing the error came again ! so i'm a i replaced the form again but i'm bit scared now that it will happen again.
I already tried compacting / reparing the database but it didn't help. this is an annoying problem that i have no idea how to fix it. it should be just one control or sumthing that's messing things up but i can't seem to find it out at least i think it's one control. Some googling on error 2106 didn't turn up something usefull :/
so how can i prevent it from happening again and how can i access this form again when it does happen. what should i look for to fix it ?
