Dear Experts.
I have a MSAccess query which runs well. Now I have to apply a minor change - remove a where clause.
When I change the query and save it, it does NOT execute anymore. When I run the query, MSAccess stalls with the hour glass cursor and does NOT execute the query, I have to kill MSAccess via the Task Manager.
The query is based on all local tables. The amount of data is low, the main table has 3000 entries. However the query has about 30 left joins to all local tables.
I tried: copy the query and paste, direclty via copy/pase ->did not solve the issue.
Copy the SQL code, made a new query, pasted the SQL code. The query is valid, can be viewed in design mode ->still not executing.
COmpacted/repaired the DB
Nothing solved the issue, I have no further ideas.
Any help is VERY appreicated
