We are tyring to create an .accde file from our 2010 database and get the following:
Microsoft Access was unable to create the .accde, .mde, or .ade file.
This error is usually associated with compiling a large database into an MDE file. Because of the method used to compile the database, a considerable number of TableID references are created for each table. The Access database engine can only create a maximum of 2048 open TableIDs at one time. Exporting a database as an MDE potentially can exceed this limit if the database has a large number of objects (table, macro, form, report, etc).
There is no accurate method to estimate the number of TableIDs the Access database engine uses during the process of compiling a database as an MDE. However, each VBA module and each form uses one TableID, as a result, if the database has 500 forms, and each form's HasModule property is set to Yes, as many as 1,000 TableIDs are used.
We have a total of 600 items that have code which based on the above would only put us at 1200 which is well under the 2048 max that is has??????
So why the error and how do I fix this???
