I have been working on migration of large ADP project from Access XP to Access 2010 and have been faced with many problems.

One of the problem is that there is thrown error when referencing sub report in its Open event.

I have a report called Main and it contains subreport control called sbrLine. In sbrLine sub report control I have placed report Line.

Open event of Line report contains following code:

MsgBox (Me.Parent.sbrLine.Report.Name)

Access 2010: How to keep Nav Pane hidden
Q. In Access 2010, how do you stop a hidden Navigation Pane from being unhidden?

These things I know:
- In MS Access you can hide the Navigation Pane to prevent users from getting to the form objects etc.
- This setting can be bypassed by holding SHIFT while opening the database.
- There is code that can disable the bypass key (the SHIFT key).

In MS Access 2007 this works fine. You can't get to the Options to turn the Nav Pane back on.

But now comes my problem: In Access 2010, the File menu is still visible, which has the 'Privacy Options' available. This lets the user go in and switch the Nav Pane back on again.

How do I stop this in Access 2010? I either need to remove the File menu, or remove the Privacy Options item from it

report filter not working in Access 2010 SP1
Windows auto installed Office 2010 SP 1 and now my Access 2010 reports no longer work. It is a Access 2003 mdb file running in Access 2010. It was working fine till SP 1 was installed.

the report opens fine, but no longer filters like it used to. (In my case I am filtering dates, using the # characters.)

Access 2010 Printer Selection
I have just upgraded to 2010 from 2007 and have opened my 2007 application in 2010.

In the original msAccess 2007 program, after filling out information on a form, I have a triggered DoCmd:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptIntakePrintedForm", acViewNormal, , "VisitID = " & Me.VisitID

In Access 2007, the report was sent to the Windows default printer. However, in Access 2010, the report is sent to a specific printer which is not always accessible, depending where I am.(That printer was used where the report was originally developed.)

Is there a 'switch' that I need to set in 2010?

Subreport Truncating in 2010
I have created a report in Access 2007 with several nested subreports that runs just fine in Access 2007. However, when a user opens the database with Access 2010 and runs the report, the 2nd level subreport truncates after about 8 records instead of showing all 27.

I opened the subreport directly and the underlying query and verified that all 27 records are presented inboth and all 27 records have valid entires in the field that links it to the parent.

I have run this on two different computers with 2010 and get the same problem on both computers.

Does anyone know what is going on here and what I can do to get the report to run correctly both in Access 2007 and 2010.
