Access 2003 and 2007 Hot Fixes

Hot fixes are now available for the following Microsoft Access issues:

Access 2003

  • An Access 2003 project (.adp) stops responding when in table Datasheet view, you delete all child rows from a parent row and then delete the parent row. This issue applies only to an Access 2003 project.
  • A database in .mdb format in Access 2003 SP3 stops responding when you try to delete a parent record from a table in Datasheet view and the Datasheet view uses a sub-datasheet that is expanded to show the related child records.

Access 2007

  • In Access 2007, you create a query that does not contain a parameter. When you export the query to a Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet, the Enter Parameter Value dialog box opens.
  • When you open a chart object in Access 2007 on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you see a blank chart.
  • After you upgrade Access 2003 to Access 2007, operations on existing forms have slow performance.
  • You cannot use the SetValue macro in the click events of a Button control to set the Locked property of a Check Box control in Access 2007.
  • You have a printer that has a staple feature. When you print an object in multiple copies in Access 2007, all the copies are stapled as one unit. However, you expect that each copy is stapled individually.
