MS Access 2016 - 'System Resource Exceeded' - Windows 10

Rayshka asked
Last Modified: 2016-08-16

I have just started receiving the message 'System Resource Exceeded' when doing the most harmless of things in MS Access. Things like opening a table in design mode, saving a record or clicking on a drop-down.

Although intermittent, when it occurs it is solid and I have to restart MS Access; clearly highly undesirable as I am supporting my MS Access App in a 10-15 user environment.

I have read several posts elsewhere but none seem to offer a reasonable solution. Some suggest editing the registry, which does little to enthrall me especially as this offers no confirmed solution. Do you have knowledge of this and can help me please.

Many, many thanks in anticipation
