    Run-time error 2486 (2003)

    Would anyone know what causes a visual basic run-time error 2486 - You can't carry out this action at the present time? I am getting this when I try to open a database on my desktop...

    You would need to work out what action is causing the error.

    If you set a breakpoint in the code, you can step through the code to see what line causes the error.

    This error usually occurs when you have code that tries to go to a non-existing record, or tries to go to a new record while you're already at a new record, or something like that.
    So the On Load or On Open code of the startup form of the database would be the first suspect.

    It doesn't happen all the time. It isn't me but someone else who uses the database. They don't get it all the time and who knows what they are doing when they get the error. I just have to guess - sort of like what you do when I ask off the wall questions. Thanks for your response.
