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

  1. Create the following macro:

          Macro Name    Action
          RunMe         DoMenuItem
          RunMe Actions
             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.

Additional query words: GPF ADK
