MS Access has stopped working

LillyC asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11

I built a database for a client which has been working fine until a massage appeared saying 'MS Access has stopped working' when the client went to add a new applicant.  This seemed to appear out of the blue as we have not made any changes to the coding behind this button.

I have resolved the problem by importing  an old form, but I want to try and understand why this has happened so it doesn't happen again. Does anyone have any ideas why this message appeared?
