Every once in a while "Find" doesn't work in access. When I hit ctrl F or hit the binoculars simply nothing happens. I have to shut down the database and then open it back up.

Any idea as to why? It is a pain!

You may want to try a Windows Update, and make sure to install all the latest updates for Microsoft Office.

Does this happen for all users?
Does this happen in all databases?

Also try:
... the compact/repair utility
...Creating a new db and importing all the objects
...a decompile (http://www.fmsinc.com/microsoftaccess/performance/decompile.asp)
