MS Access 2003 - The Expression on click / on unload error

Hi,

I am getting above error while clicking on any button or closing any form.

I tried Compact and Repair. Importing all items in a new database.

It's  working fine in 2007.

PFA the screen shot.

I agree that there is some form of corruption in that database.

If you remove and then re-paste  (take them out and then put them back in  again) the on click, on load, or other events that are causing this error, you'll find that they will start wotking normally again.

I haven't tried this, but before going through all the effort of removing and restoring your code, you might try decompiling it.  See the instructions here - and make a backup first:

THis usually means you have a code error/corruption or a reference is missing.

Toheck references, in any code module, goto menu tools>references. Look for any that are marked as missing. You must file the file (dll, ocx etc...) and select it and ernsure it shows as selected.

Then try an compile the database - Menu Debug>Compile

Hi Kelvin,

All references are ok, how to find if there is any corruption.

Has this database ever worked on Access 2003 systems, or is this a new problem?

Can you post a little more detail about what leads to this error - which forms/buttons/etc...

And if possible post a sample copy of your database.

Hi,

Yes I can compile the database. Earlier it was working but suddenly started giving this error. It's giving this error on each event.
PFA the database.

You'll have to post a version that does not have a vba password.

Also,  I don't know if this caused the problem or not, but since you are developing a database for users with different versions of Access, make sure that all of your development is done in the lowest version.

In other words, if you are mixing Access 2003 and Access 2007, all of your development should be done in Access 2003.

There is some form of corruption which can be fixed using a decompile.
Use a copy of your database and execute the following command (adjusted for your own folder locations) from the Run dialog.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" "databasefolder\Rio Tinto - Expedite V1.2.mdb" /decompile

Sorry - I gave you the wrong link.  These are the decompile instructions I'd meant to post:

Giving credit where credit is due, you might want to try MX's solution and close Access, then reboot your computer.

Dale,

Did you download the DB and try that?  It doesn't work for me.

MX's rebooting idea clears phantom breakpoints, which looks to me like a different problem (this one is resolvable by cut/pasting the code, and I imagine by decompiling too).

Miriam,

No, cannot download while I'm at work.  I would concur that a decompile is in order.

But whenever I run into one of those situations that just doesn't make sense, where something I know should work isn't, I blame it on Windows and try rebooting.

Hi Team,

This MS access 2003 db is using MS Access 12.0 object library reference.

Is it causing problem? and how to change the reference from 12 to 11.
It says object in use while removing the reference and did not add 11 while 12 is already there.

Please suggest.

Regards,
Sandesh

Kelvin SparksCommented:
You have to make sure that no code is running. Start the database, holding down the shift key to ensure no autoexec macro runs. Then goto a VBA page (any one) and deselect the 12 version, then scroll down and find the 11 version. May pay to check it is installed first.

Hi Kelvin,

I could not able to remove reference, as it says cant remove control or reference: in use.

Did you try cutting / pasting a block of code as suggested earlier?

This minor edit fixed the corruption for me in your sample.
