Access 2003 Report Hangs on "Formatting Page" in Access 2010

Access 2003 Report Hangs on "Formatting Page" in Access 2010

(OP)

I have a report that runs perfectly in Access 2003 but when I attempt to run the report in Access 2010 it hangs displaying a "Formatting Page" message.

I've checked the libraries references etc. and they are correct.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

RE: Access 2003 Report Hangs on "Formatting Page" in Access 2010

Can you provide any information about the report such as does it have subreports, code, [Page] of [Pages], etc?

Do any other reports work or do they all hang?

Is this report set up to use the default or a specific printer?

Hi Duane

This is the only report I've had a problem with since the change. It does have a sub report and is run via code from a form. The only code on the report itself is on the On Close event (makes an entry form visible). The other report/subreport reports run fine. The report can have multiple pages (the user can select a particular individual from a group or print the report for the whole group). When I test it in 2003 for a single individual it comes up almost immediately but the same selection in 2010 loops seemingly infinitely.

What happens if you take out the code?
What happens if you take out the subreport?

Sorry about the slow response time. I was out of the office a couple of days and when I returned staff informed me that the report had suddenly began to run normally. We'd upgraded about 10 days before and the report hung on every attempt to run it in 2010 for about a week and then started running fine without any intervention on my part. Weird!

Duane, Thanks for your input on the problem.
