When accessing vb editor on form I'm receiving:

Debug Error!
Program:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\MSAccess.EXE
abnormal program termination

         the error message Title Bar reads:  Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library

I've tried compact/repair but to no avail.  Any thoughts on what can be done to alleviate this problem?

When I hit the retry button another error window comes up:
Runtime error (with same information)

Thanks

Do u get this problem with other db's?

Have u tried decompiling your DB?

Another thing is to Detect/Repair the office installation?

Might even require a reinstall of Office as u may have some corrupt drivers somewhere

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Well decompiling I dont think will do anything - here is more info on it

The fact that all your db's are affected leads me to believe there is some corruption or a older driver is in place. So I think a office repair or reinstall might just do the trick

You gotta love having Visual Studio Enterprise on your pc.
It's bad enough you get a runtime error in Access, but hit the wrong button and it dumps you into a C++ debugger.

It appears the server went down when the db was open which initially caused the problem?.  I did a reinstall just to be sure.  
Everything is fine now.  Thanks
