    Report Crash (Access 2007)

    A previously working report now crashes my database if I open it straight to a printer, but runs just fine if I open it in PrintPreview and step through the pages. I've gone through the process of creating a new clean db and copied the controls and code from the offending report into a new report ... no change in the results. Can a control be corrupted such that copying it into the new report propagates the problem?

    Problems like that are very difficult to troubleshoot. Did you use any controls that are not native to Access?
    Does the problem only occur with this particular report, or with other reports too?
    How much work would it be to rebuild the entire report from scratch?

    Have you tried it on another PC with another printer? Access reports are closely tied into the printer drivers and there may be problem there rather than in your db. You might try re-installing the prnter or updating the drivers as well before rebuilding the report.
