As a first step, I can recommend doing a Decompile  .

In my experience this has solved 98% of any issues I've had. There has been very rare occasions where the only fix I could get was to create a new database, and import the objects into that new database.

concur with Anders, but first, create a backup of your database.

You should also Compact and Compile your application. I suggest this process:

1. Compact the database
2. Compile it - from the VBA menu select Debug - Compile. Correct any errors and continue doing that until the Compile menuitem is disabled.
3. Compact again

Now run the Decompile as Anders suggests

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

Make a brand-new database, and import all objects into it from the problem databasse.  If there are any problem objects, leave them behind and recreate them in the new database.
