Have a strange problem in Access, I have some VBA code that imports an XML document (application.ImportXml) - this has been work well with no problems, then I upgrade my database by adding /amending objects none of which have any impact on the import XML code. After upgrading the XML Import stops working and now crash's access - the error message is one of a cant read memory one and doesnt really mean much, has any one come across this problem before and could it be system table related?

I've seen this many times before. Often it occurs if you have some class modules  in your database. Sometimes it helps to edit one of it, add an additional empty line somewhere (just press enter) and save it. If this doesn't help, you have to open a new database and import all of the objects. I don't know if this is system table related, never had time to search for the reason of that.

Have resolved the problem, I imported a query that linked to tables that had additional fields created but the  fields in the upgraded db still reflected the old objects, although I would have expected access to report that the joins didn't exist instead it fell over on the export function even though the function did not use the query in question, a little odd but there you go. Thanks for your help Stephan.

resolved question myself by importing each object one at a time and then running code.
