Up until a couple of weeks ago I had several .mdb databases working fine.
Suddenly, Access 2007 can no longer create new databases nor open the existing ones - it hangs for about 20 seconds and then stops "thinking", remaining on its home page (where you can Open Recent Documents, create a new blank database etc), with no error message.
The problem seemed to coincide with a Windows Update, and I've removed the recent ones that appear to relate to Access, but this has not fixed the problem.
I've tried to repair Office and have removed and reinstalled, still no luck.
Within event viewer, under Applications & Services logs > Microsoft Office sessions, there is the following message:
ID: 2, Application Name: Microsoft Office Access, Application Version: 12.0.4518.1014, Microsoft Office Version: 12.0.6425.1000. This session was terminated unexpectedly.
I'm on a Windows 7 PC - as I mentioned, everything had been working fine on the same machine up until a few weeks ago.
