Experts,
I have been working on an ms access application for about 3 years, and all of a sudden, one of the first update statements that I created about 2 years ago just starting hanging, and I can't figure out why.  Please see the query below:

UPDATE mjm_attend_pay_indiv AS z SET z.deposit_flg = -1
WHERE z.row_id in
(
SELECT API.ROW_ID
FROM
MJM_SCHOOL AS S, MJM_CLASS AS C, MJM_STUDENT AS ST, MJM_ATTEND_PAY_INDIV AS API, qry_Deposit_Slip_Total_Num AS TN, qry_Deposit_Slip_Amount AS A
WHERE
S.ROW_ID=C.SCHOOL_ID And
C.ROW_ID=ST.CLASS_ID And
ST.ROW_ID=API.STUDENT_ID And
S.ROW_ID=TN.ROW_ID And
S.ROW_ID=A.ROW_ID And
ST.ACTIVE_FLG=-1 And
API.PAID_FLG=-1 And API.DEPOSIT_FLG=0

pulled apart the update statement.  The subquery works properly and returns 35 rows, and if I take out the subquery and hardcode values the update works.  It just doesn't work together.  Why would that be?  Why would something that hasn't been updated in years, just start hanging?  It doesn't error, it doesn't do anything, it just hangs eternally.  Is there anything else that I can do, or try.  I tried changing around the query, but I have a feeling it is something else.  In the past I had an issue, and it turned out to be a random module that was causing a problem.  I delete all of modules, and that didn't help this time.

Any sugestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

I assume the missing right paren after _FLG=0  is just a cut and paste error?

"and it turned out to be a random module that was causing a problem"

What exactly do you mean by that?

Any change you have any **missing References ?

Yes, the ")" was just a cut and paste error.  I have been calling this update query for about 2 years, and all of a sudden the query just started hanging.

What I meant about the module was that.  In the past I had a random issue with a query that was throwing an error, and the problem turned out to be a completely unrelated module that I created, that was just causing an issue.  It doesn't make sense to me why that would happen, but I thought I would throw that in there also.

Do you have any **missing References ?

If not, then >>>

For fun, try a **DeCompile** is on order ... with your modules in

Follow this procedure:

1) Compact and Repair
2) Execute the Decompile >> you database will reopen
3) Close the mdb
4) Open the mdb ... and then do a Compile.
5) Close
6) Compact and Repair one more time

Try this and see what happens

Here are sample 'links'.  Adjust your paths and file names accordingly:

Run this from Start>>Run.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /decompile C:\Access2000Clients\GoldstandtSma\App\SmaApp2K.mdb


"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /decompile C:\Access80Clients\GoldstandtPdm\App\PdmAppl8.mdb

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /decompile C:\Access80Clients\GoldstandtSma\App\SmaAppl8.mdb

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /decompile C:\Access80Clients\HMC\App\AimAppl8.mdb

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /decompile "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\AdiSML80.mda"
