Access report

I've a local access database, in 2000 format, and all reports doesn't open in preview. If I copy the same db in another pc all works well.
No one error is displayed.
What can I do?



Thank you

I'd suggest checking that you do have an default printer associated with this computer.

Even if you are only opening an Access report in print preview, I believe it does look for a printer.

Also, open a code module, and from the VBA Editor:

Tools --> Options -->  Under the General tab, select "break on all errors" (temporariliy!)

Try running your report(s) again with this setting and see if you get an error.

Revert that setting to "break on unhandled errors" when you are done testing this.

I know you said the database is "in 2000 format", but you didn't indicate which version of Access are you running on each of the PCs?

How are you attempting to open the reports?

If you are running Access 2007 on the PC which is encountering the problem, this could be a trusted macros issue.

Pc is not mine, I think this happen after a program installation.... that probably change something....

Is this an issue/problem on only one isolated PC?
What is the OS?, what version of Access?, ...etc?

Make sure that PC has all of it's updates installed for Windows and Office.

In other words, compare the specs of the machines that this works fine on, with the specs of the PC that has this issue.
As close as possible, try to make the configuration (Software and updates, but to a lesser extent, hardware) of the bad PC the same as the PCs that work fine (if possible)

Note that Access 2000 is 12 year old technology
Since a great many files are shared with the OS and Office, there is no way to be certain that an Access 2000 format DB will run flawlessly on a newer configuration.

It happen only in one pc with Windows XP service pack 3.

Obviously there is a difference...

Again, what is the configuration of the machines that this works fine on?

Is it an option to simply reload the machine (if loaded from an image), or just use a machine that it does work on?

Perhaps there is a simple solution here, perhaps we could guess at this for days...

Let's see what the other experts post...
