In Microsoft Access 2000, when you run a long script or a script with repeating actions, Access eventually runs out of memory and returns the following error message:

There isn't enough memory available to perform this calculation.

Scripts that ran properly in Access 97 will not run to completion in Access 2000 because of memory restrictions.


Access does not free memory used for each script until the script has completed all of its actions. Scripts are now double in size because Access 2000 scripts are Unicode and Access 97 scripts are not.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
