Custom access forms design in MS Access won’t save

Hi Everyone,

I'm having this dilemma with MS Access 2010. Why is my new custom access forms design or template that I created not saving?

Please help.

Hi Mili,

It sounds like this is corrupted. You could try these steps to fix it:

  1. You should make a backup of your bad database, without overwriting old backups.
  2. You should uncheck the Name Autocorrect Boxes.
  3. Compact and Repair Database on the Database Tools ribbon.
  4. To decompile you should put this Command into a Command Prompt, including the quotes.
     "C:Program FilesMicrosoft officeofficemsaccess.exe" /decompile "C:MyPathMyDatabase.mdb"
    (You must change the path to where MS ACCESS is on your computer.)
  5. Compact again.
  6. You must "Set minimal references"- choose references in "Tools menu" and then uncheck anything you don't need.
  7. Click on "Debug menu" and chose "Compile"- and fix all errors, and then repeat until everything is ok.
  8. Click "Tools menu" and choose "Options".
    General tab > set "Error Trapping" to "Break on an unhandled error" and uncheck "Compile on demand".
