Access 2010 Error – MS Access not working

Whenever there is a code error, no matter how small – you may not be given a chance to correct it if you switch to another form or move to another object. MS Access 2010 abruptly pops up a box with the error MS Access Not Working – with the options to Close or Debug.

The solution is to right click the Start button, and in the Search box, type ‘msaccess.exe /decompile’. Once this is done, Access will reopen (if it doesn’t, repeat the decompile procedure). Select your database, select a form with code, go to the code, go to Debug (the project), Compile, fix any errors, then Compile again till there are no errors.

Note that you can also decompile from the command prompt, but the Search box method is more simple and faster.
