Hi,

I get  the error as below on a few machines running a database. All machines have enough memory free. This has just happened on my mahcines that when I checked have 2GB free out of 4GB. I'm thinking that access has a memory allocation it give itself which is getting full?

How can I stop this from happening.

Thanks

This can be a file corruption problem. Try creating a new blank database and copy all of the objects to this new one a try it again. Also make a Compact and Repair first to see if it solves the problem (make a backup copy first!).

what version of msaccess are you using? If it a older version like 95/97 their is a limitation on the size of the mdb file. compact the mdb using the options under the database menu
