Hello,

I have a new machine running Access 2013.  I moved a current project from a 2010 machine and first noticed that if I run a make table query, after it runs, I need to hit F5 in the database window for the table to appear.  I am also noticing that forms display Calculating... in the bottom of the form and refresh EXTREMELY slowly.  I saw some info on conditional formatting and I even went so far as removing all subforms from the current form.  No difference.

Also the same on any form.

You might need to perform some maintenance on your db. First make a backup, then do this:

1. Compact the database
2. Compile the database. Fix any issues you find, and keep doing this until the menuitem is disabled
3. Compact again.

Now Decompile the database. To do that, create a Shortcut with this as the Target:

"full path to msaccess.exe" "full path to your database" /decompile

Run that shortcut, then do the 3 steps above again.

You might also consider moving everything into a new, blank database, especially since you're moving from 2010 to 2013. Quite a few users have reported similar issues when doing the same, and moving to a new database helped.

Also be sure your Windows and Office installations are fully up to date.
