I'm trying to update a select query.  When I go to save the query, Access closes.  When I reopen the db and look at the query, my chgs are not saved.  Other queries work OK.  What could the issue be?

Try the basics

Compact & Repair the db

If not fix

Delete the query, do a Compact & Repair, then recreate the query

If no fix, Import all objects (except Linked tables) into a blank db.

Do you get the same results when
     creating a NEW query
     Editing a different query  (in short 1 or 2 queries or ALL queries)

If it is just the one query...  copy the SQL to the clipboard and save it as a NEW query
if all queries...   the container is corrupt...   get them into a new container

None of the three options worked.  Could it be it's too large?  It's a lot of code.

No.  I'm going to break it into 2 queries and see if that fixes it.  Is there generally a character limit on the queries?

OK.  This fixed it, but not sure what implications this solution will have on the db.  Any ideas?

Seems to be specific to 2002...  interesting...  skiped from 97 to 2003...   I missed all the fun...

Don't know what if anything shutting down autocorrect will do to you.... but if it works...  your ahead of the game...

Guess I should have though of the Name Auto Correct issue.  I always turn if off.

OK.  It works, I'm happy.  If something comes up I'll deal with it then!
