In version 2005 Of Microsoft Access build number 6.0.12827.20010, if you manipulate Decimal fields (Access DataType=Number/FieldSize=Decimal, or SQL DataType=Decimal) using DAO (Data Access Objects), Microsoft Access may crash. If you hover a Field variable with Decimal type in VBA code, you may see that the field value is not being displayed properly; either reading as ‘?????’ or giving a Type Mismatch error, or Microsoft Access may crash.
This is now fixed in all affected channels.
For Current Channel, version 2005, the issue is fixed in build 16.0.12827.20470. You may need to force a manual update to get the new version.
