I need to delete a corrupt form in Access 2K
Posted on 2015-02-15
My Access 2K program file (front end of db) has become corrupt and can not be repaired using Compact and Repair.
While importing all the object into a new database I learned that several the problem is corrupt forms and reports.
I would prefer to repair the existing mdb file if possible. (If I recreate the database, I will need to deal with MS SQL database connections and third party add-in software security problems.).
I don't care about these objects. I want them out of my database. Can you help?
When I try to delete them I can three error messages.
1. The form name 'myform' is misspelled or refers to a form that does not exist.
2. You canceled the previous operation
3. Module not found.
I have also opened the objects, deleted the controls, and the code in the module, but get the same error message and am unable to solve the problem.
