Access form won't open, "Not enough memory"

I was in the process of editing a complex form in Access 2003. At one point, when I closed the form (in design view) and tried to open it in form view, I got an error that access cannot complete the operation because there is not enough memory.
I know that the problem is not my computer, because I am able to open the database on another computer (with Access 2010), and when I try to open that form, or export it, or anything, I get the same memory error.
This form would take hours, if not days, to recreate.
Is there anything I can do?
