MS Access 2007 stopped working.


  • When starting MS Access 2007, it frequently reports "Microsoft Office Access has stopped working.".


    This occurs every time I attempt to open an already created database, and subsequently any recovery that Access attempts. I can cancel the recovery attempt and create a new database, but then the cycle starts over again..


    This problem has only begun today, so I am assuming that something has been updated recently..


    Any thoughts / solutions?

  • did you find a solution you can share???  I have the same problem.  It did not start until I upgraded to Vista.  I am considereing uninstalling Vista in favor of XP.


    Thanks for any solution you or anyone else has.

  • Hi Alex


    No there has been no solution offered, all I have been able to do is work around the problem. You will (of course) need to ensure that your problem is the same as mine. Unfortunately, I upgraded to Vista before the upgrade to Office 2007 - so I cannot say whether Vista itself is to blame. The workaround for my problem, was to remove the labels that had been text boxes and add the labels manually - the problem then went away - except for the extra work needed...

  • I can't even keep access open for two seconds before it crashes.  This is a real problem since I need access to invoice clients.


    What does it take to convey the problem to a real microsoft engineer and get a solution (or at least the cause of the problem)?


    I think i'll try a re-install of office before un-install vista.  Thanks for the feedback.

  • Can any Microsoft experts help with this?  The following error occurs when I try to import an excel file into an access 2007 data table:


    "Microsoft Office Access has stopped working"



    Why is this???  Similar error occurs with my new BlackBerry desktop device manager, which I have not been able to synch yet.


    I have a dell Latitude D620 with Vista Business 32-bit, including the recent service pack, and office 2007.  I run defrag very often as well as a registry cleaner.


    Please help Microsoft.  I am desperate!!!
