You Canceled the previous operation

You Canceled the previous operation

You Canceled the previous operation

I have a form that I spent many hours creating. The problem is that after a crash I can't open the form any longer not even in design view. It gives me an error message that says " You canceled the previous operation." Can I do anything to save this form. I have tried compacting and reapairing. I have tried coping the form. It tells me that the module is not found. Can anyone offer me some help!

RE: You Canceled the previous operation

Have you tried creating a new .mdb, and importing all the objects you need? This may or my not help, but it's worth a shot.

Do you have a backup copy of the database somewhere? From the sounds of it, you don't. This is a good practice, to make a backup copy on a regular basis. If you are making lots of design changes, and working with the database continually, then at least at the end of every day, if not twice a day. I realize this doesn't help you now, but a good practice none-the-less.

If I can think of anything else, will let you know.

RE: You Canceled the previous operation

Just wanted to tell you that you are not the only one who has had this problem. It happend to me yesterday. I got the exact same message, and I wan't able repair it.
If you have made a lot of code in the form you might be able to save this.
I managed to save all the code behind the form by opening the Code view and then selecting the form-module and exporting all the code to a file. Then I imported all the database objects into a new database except the fautly form. I then importet the form from an old backup and inserted the code from the exported file.
