Loop Limits Question


J

JHB

Hi:

I am running an application which was set up in Access 2000, under
Access 2007 AND Access 2010 in compatability mode. While I have had no
trouble with the Access 2000 version or the Access 2007 version, a
number of things seem different in Access 2010. Among other things,
the program does a number of loops (working through a table with
external querys). This is not an issue in 2000 and hasnt been one so
far in 2007. HOWEVER in 2010 the system throws up a message that I can
only loop 19 times and then hangs up!.

I need some way to get around thins (for example resetting the limit),
since changing the looping logic would be a massive undertaking. Does
any one have any idea how to do that either through VBA or through
setting some option in Access?

Help please -- we are stuck!

It's pretty hard to guess why that might happen. But round up
the usual suspects. Step through the code and see what is going
on when the error occurs. Compare what is happening at that
point in the different versions, and see if you can figure out
what the difference is.

Thanks for the response.

I have been doing that, but is very time consuming and difficult
(different machines in different locations and all), Question is is
there some built in limit and no way to change it? If there is, I will
probably have to rewrite this whole section for VBA (I assume it
doesnt have a limit on loops) and scrap the macro code, but that again
is something that will take a good bit of time.

There are plenty of built in limits, but none of them are 19.

As to different locations: remote desktop can be your friend.

Is there somewhere that lists them all and says specifically that they
apply to macro loops? I have not run into this with any versions other
than 2010!

What's the actual message? And more to the point what's the actual code? Is
this in VBA, in a table macro, what? How is the loop limit being specified?

It's a bit hard to see around corners to what's actually going on!

Sorry to make life difficult. The code involved macro internal calls
including one which was to itself. Thats where the problem was. I have
recoded it as VBA dowhile loop and now it working fine (except for
problems with echo off!, which are the subject of a seperate question
to the multitide). You may not realize it but you have bene a big help
making me really look at what I had done!

Thanks
