ACC1x: DoMenuItem Run Macro Causes GP Fault
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1
- Microsoft Access Distribution Kit, version 1.1
When you run a macro that has a DoMenuItem that contains the Macro Run commands, a general protection (GP) fault or "Out Of Stack Space" error will occur.
Use the RunMacro action instead of the DoMenuItem action to run a macro.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 2.0.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
Create the following macro:
Macro Name Action ------------------------ RunMe DoMenuItem RunMe Actions ------------- DoMenuItem Menu Bar: Macro Menu Name: Macro Command: Run
- Save and then close the macro.
- Run the macro.
A GP fault will occur. If the macro is still open in Design view when you run it, an "Out Of Stack Space" error will occur.
