Access opens default form twice
Posted on 2013-05-17
I have an Access application, running in 2003 mode, in Access 2010, on a server running Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have set a form called frmMainMenu to open on startup. At startup, the following happens:
1. frmMainMenu is displayed twice, one version slightly overlapping the other, for a couple of seconds
2. the screen then goes blank for several seconds, with "Microsoft Access (not responding)" in the title bar
3. the application then opens, displaying frmMainMenu in the correct fashion
I have tried creating a new version of frmMainMenu - same problem. I have also tried nominating a different form as the default - same problem. I have also attempted to create a totally new database and import all the objects, but this did not work because there are over 1,000 of them, plus numerous ODBC links to the MySQL backend.
Advice on how to prevent this happening would be much appreciated.
