Corruption recovery: "Microsoft Office Access can't find the macro 'TrackDBaseForms'"
Posted on 2006-06-27
I've corrupted a database. In an effort to recover it, I have created a new database, and imported all tables, queries, forms, reports, macros from the corrupted database into the new one.
However, when I try to open most of the forms, I get the error message:
"Microsoft Office Access can't find the macro 'TrackDBaseForms'
The macro (or its macro gruop) doesn't exist, or the macro is new but hasn't been saved...."
I've been supporting this database for a year, and have never come across this missing macro. A Google search returns zero results, so I assume it's something that the early developers did. However, it's not obviously in the macros page, or in any code I can find.
Does anyone know of other ways I can look for this missing definition?
(the corrupted database is in such a state that it won't open at all: the main form that is set to open on startup corrupts - is there a way to open a database without that form opening?)
