Re-Installed Access - Database not working

Hi,

I re-installed Windows 7.
I then re-installed Access.

Now a database that was perfect 2 months ago is failing miserably!
I have not worked in Access in the intervening 2 months.
For example I have a simple "Menu" system and this is not even working.

I suspect that I need to go into "Tools-->References" etc.
However, this is an area that I am not too familiar with.


Excuse the lack of detail but can you help me?  I think the problem may be related to my re-install??

Thanks!

Open the VBA Editor and from the toolbar as you mentioned:

Tools --> References
Uncheck any that are labeled as MISSING
Replace them with the correct version from the list
Click OK to save and exit

Also, when you first open your database - ensure that you have enabled Macros, or have set the folder that the database resides in as a trusted location:

If that doesn't help, please describe what you mean by "failing miserably".

Thanks mbizup,

However, I have not resolved things!
But I feel that it is something extremely obvious!

I am taking a break for a few hours.
It may well be one of those issues that I can resolve in 5 minutes when I start afresh.

Note to self!

If you get stuck on something that feels very basic ....

Take a break and re-visit ..... time can be a great solver!!
