    Debug problem

    I have a startup form that does some administrative stuff, shows a sign in form, and then brings up the main form. The transition from form to form was working properly but at some point in refining the code, the main form stopped coming up. If I put a break point in the sign in logic and step through the code, everything works fine. If I then remove the breakpoint, it fails again.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to debug behavior like this?

    TIA
    Donald

    Re: Debug problem

    you've done this obvious thing of stepping through your code. I've found one way round similar problems is simply to create a new mdb and import all yours current forms etc into it.
    It doesn't tell you what the problem is but it does (sometimes) get you round it.
    Alternative is to look at decompile or jetcomp to try repairing it.

    No, I can't post it -- too big and complicated. Some other problems have arisen and I am going to seriously overhaul the whole thing. So cancel this whole post.

    Thanks to those who looked at it and considered it.
