SYMPTOMS

When you use the Filter By Form command to filter a form that contains a linked subform, you may receive the following error message:

There are too many controls on the form to allow Filter By Form.


Upon applying the filter, you receive the error message:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

When you click the Details button, you receive the following message:

   MSACCESS caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL.

   -or-

   MSACCESS caused an invalid page fault in module MSACCESS.EXE.
                

CAUSE

The subform is based on either a totals query or a crosstab query and is linked to the main form.

RESOLUTION

There are two possible ways to work around this behavior:

  • Set the subform's RecordSource property to a temporary table created with a make-table query based on the original totals query or crosstab query.
  • Use the form's other filtering capabilities to filter the data, such as Filter By Selection, or Advanced Filter/Sort.


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access 97. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Access 2000.
