I have access database I have been using, and it's been working fine.  All of a sudden today when I try and preview a report it says not enought memory to preform this operation,  I have rebooted computer, no other apps open, did a repair on the database.  I have plenty of memory and I am still having this issue.  Any suggestions?

You stated that you have done a compact and repair on the database.  At this point I would make sure that Windows and Office are fully up to date.  You might have a corrupt dll.  Run Windows Update.

The other thing you can do if the above does not fix your problem is to import all your database objects into a new blank(empty) Access database.  There are some Access corruptions that cannot be fixed and the only solution is to move everything into a new Access database.

Is there anyway to copy over all the query's and reports to a new database?  That's the problem it has a lot of query's and a report that took a long time to design.

Thanks

Yes.
First create a new database.
Then from the New database, import everything over from the old database.

Within the  new Database, click the tab External data.
you will see an Icon marked 'Access' with an arrow pointing to a table.
Click this icon.
Enter the path to the old database and follow the prompts.
