    Strange Happening (A2k)

    In one particular form I am designing,When I make changes, I usually click the save icon then the form view icon.
    From time to time, when I press the form view icon, the db just bombs out and closes.

    I have deleted the ldb manually, debugged and compacted & repaired.

    It still happens, has any-one seen this before.
    On the whole, the db is still ok and functions as it should ??

    There might be some kind of corruption in the form, but it is often difficult to pinpoint the exact cause.

    It is safer to save and close the form after design changes, then opening it in form view. If you switch between design view and form view, the form isn't re-initialized completely, even if you save the design.

    Hans
    Thanks for the info, I found the fault.
    I still use the utility you designed a while back which closes all other forms and opens the current form in design view.
    This form in particular, in the OnClose propery, looks for another form to set focus on, but.
    With my error trapping statement, it bombs out because it can' find the form it neds to set focus on.
    Only a small problem,
    Thanks again.
