Access ADP Stopped Working

Access ADP Stopped Working

Access ADP Stopped Working

I have an Access ADP project that was created in Access 2003. Recently we upgraded to Access 2010. The APD connects to an SQL 2000 database. The ADP works fine until I try to make changes. After making changes and reopening the project, the project crashes shortly after I open it. It happens even if I hold down the shift key to prevent the AutoExec code from loading or a form from loading. I can open the project and do nothing but wait and about 15-30 seconds later it closes with an error "Access has stopped working". I have tried compact and repair. I tried creating a new ADP, connecting it to the same database and importing the forms, modules, and reports from the old ADP but Access crashes while copying the forms. It does not matter which form I try to copy. I am running Windows 7 64-bit with Office 2010 32-bit. Any ideas will be appreciated.

RE: Access ADP Stopped Working

After searching for 2 weeks to find the solution, I post here and 10 minutes later find a solution. To fix the issue, run msaccess in /decompile mode and then open the Visual Basic editor and compile the code from the debug menu. I found several procedures that were left over from prior updates that references objects that no longer existed in the application. Commenting out these procedures allowed the database project to compile.

I guess this means Microsoft is forcing us to be better developers and not leave code behind just because we are to lazy to clean it up.
