INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

This hotfix fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • In Access 2007, you create a form by specifying the following property values:
    Collapse this tableExpand this table
    PropertyValue
    ModalYes
    Pop UpYes
    Auto ResizeNo
    Then, you update the record source of the form. When you open the form by using a macro, the form opens in a small reduced mode.
  • When you export a report to an .rft file in Access 2007, the export process is very slow compared to the same process in Access 2003.
  • You create a macro by specifying the RunMacro action in Access 2007. You specify the Repeat Expression parameter of the RunMacro action to run a second macro at least two times. The second macro contains the StopMacro action. When you run the macro and the second macro stops running because of the StopMacro action, the macro also stops running, even if the expression evaluates to True. However, in Access 2003, the macro stops for the current iteration, and then continues to run until the expression evaluates to False.
  • You have a text file that contains a column of date values that are not delimited. When you try to link to the text file or import the column from Access 2007, you encounter the following problems:
    • If you link to the text file by specifying the column as the Date/Time data type, the column values are displayed as #Num! in Access 2007.
    • If you import the column by specifying the column as the Date/Time data type, the column values are not imported. In the ImportErrors table, you receive the following error message on the Error column:
      Type Conversion Failure.
  • Consider the following scenario. You create a form in Access 2007. You also create two subforms that are bound to queries or to stored procedures in Microsoft SQL Server. Additionally, Access 2007 populates data into the subforms by using parameter values. The first subform also sets the parameter value of the second subform. You update the first subform. In this scenario, the second subform does not update.

    Note This problem does not occur in Access 2003.
  • You create some linked tables in an Access 2007 database. Additionally, you create a form and add controls that display data from the linked tables. When you operate on these controls, you experience very slow performance compared to Access 2003.

    Note This problem does not occur if you use imported tables.
