Access 2007 with Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading to Windows 7, I get an annoying message everytime I open an Access .mdb file which says "There was a problem sending the command to the program."

    When I click the OK button, the message box disappears and I am able to use the file as normally as I would before the upgrade.

    How do I eliminate this nuisance?

  • I had the same issue and what worked for me, what going into the microsoft button top left hand corner, go to access options, then go to advance and uncheck two boxes called ignore dde and enable dde, then close it and reopen and see if you get the problem.  It worked for me.  :)

  • I have other problems with Access:

    1. I can't debug.

    2. I always need to check "Display Navigation Pane" in "Current Database" of "Access Options".

    Any Ideas?

     

    It's start happening from some version of the software I wrote in Access. I tryied to take that version that works well with no problems that I mentioned before, and copy to it the updated code, but the problems repeated.

    It's like in some step I "break" the software.

    It is very strange.
