    'Frozen' Objects in Query Design Grid (2002 (10.4712.4219) SP-2)

    My apologies if this question has been posted already. (Is the search tool still unavailable? I can't find it.)

    Anyway, occasionally, the objects in the top half of the query design grid appear to lock in place -- I can't select them or drag them around. I fiddle with the scroll bars and/or moving the whole window around and eventually I can move them again. I work a little more and the same thing happens again. Seems to happen with the Database Window itself from time to time, too (the scroll bar freezes) -- I move the window around the screen a little or change to a different set of objects and it works again...

    Has anyone else seen this behavior? I'm wondering whether it might be more of a WinXP thing or a monitor driver / graphics card thing, but I don't see the behavior in other applications. I think it started when I upgraded to WinXP / OfficeXP (both at the same time).

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Tom,

    I occasionally experience the same lockup in Windows XP / Access 2002. I haven't found any information about it, and I "solve" it more or less the same way. Sometimes minimizing and restoring Access works, or switching to another application and back.

    Hans,

    After I posted the message above, I found something that seems to help a little more reliably (at least for the Query Design Grid): If I highlight one of the fields in the object first, then drag the title bar of the object, it always seems to be movable (if I just go try to drag the title bar first, usually it moves, but sometimes it doesn't).

    Thanks, I'll try it next time it happens to me.
