If a database has the Name AutoCorrect feature enabled, users may experience a delay when they try to open database objects.
When using a secured database with Name AutoCorrect enabled, the current user must have design permissions on the object to enable Name AutoCorrect to track, fix, and log the binding errors when an object is opened. If a user does not have design permission on an object that Name AutoCorrect is trying to change, the changes occur every time that the user opens the object because the user does not have permissions to ever save the changes.
Have a user who has permissions to modify the design of the object open it. Then the changes will be permanent.
To determine if the Name AutoCorrect feature is in use for the database, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab. Note that there are three check boxes for the Name AutoCorrect feature: Track name AutoCorrect info, Perform name AutoCorrect, and Log name AutoCorrect changes. If the Track name AutoCorrect info text box is selected (checked), the Name AutoCorrect feature is in use for the database.
