ACC1x: DoMenuItem Run Macro Causes GP Fault

Q105518



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1
  • Microsoft Access Distribution Kit, version 1.1





SYMPTOMS

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.



RESOLUTION

Use the RunMacro action instead of the DoMenuItem action to run a macro.



STATUS

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.



MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Problem



  1. Create the following macro:

          Macro Name    Action
          ------------------------
          RunMe         DoMenuItem
    
          RunMe Actions
          -------------
          DoMenuItem
             Menu Bar: Macro
             Menu Name: Macro
             Command: Run 
  2. Save and then close the macro.
  3. 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.
