"Automatic Configuration of Access has failed" 2007 was working fi

I have access 2003 and 2007 on the computer. I was copying some vba code from 2003 and then testing it in 2007. I shut down everything and then tried to restart access 2007. When I did, I got an installer screen and then the following message:
"Automatic Configuration of the current version of Microsoft Office Access has failed. Your database might not function correctly. This can occur if you do not have the necessary permissions to install Microsoft Access on this computer"
I can no longer run access 2007 as it shuts down after this message.

Access 2010 won't open side-by-side configuration error message how do I fix?
My Office 2010 install had problems, Outlook failed, Access failed with "side-by-side configuration error message. I tried repair numerous times, finally caved in and did uninstall and reinstalled.

Outlook works, Access still fails with side-by-side configuration error message.

I had Office 2007 installed with Office 2010 and everything worked just fine. Outlook 2010 worked great, all other Office 2007 and 2010 programs worked fine, then problems developed.

Configuration Switching Between 2002 and 2007
I have Access 2003 and 2007 applications that I use. When I exit a 2003 app and start a 2007 app, Access goes through a minute long configuration process. Then when I close the 2007 app and start a 2003 app, Access goes through another minute long configuration process. This is very annoying and time consuming especially when I am switching back and forth a number of time a day.

I have also noticed that it is possible to have both a 2003 and 2007 app opened at the same time without apparent problems. It still goes through the configuration process, but they both seem to be working without problems.

Is it necessary to go through the configuration process each time and, if not, how do I prevent it from happening?

Inventory Database: Automatic Adjustments?
I have a database for inventory, consisting of around 70 different computer parts. My skills in Access are limited to this project.starting from scratch and reaching this wall.

My goal is to create a form, which prompts the user to select the configuration of a new computer. After selecting the configuration, I would then like the inventory database to automatically be adjusted to the specifications.

Basically, each item selected for the computer would decrease 1, after the "order" is completed. A Basic Inventory Adjustment.

If this is confusing, I will gladly describe it the best I can through another thread or email if you need.

Microsoft Access Datbase Engine 2010
I have an application that requires Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010. The application tries to install it but fails, I downloaded the .exe from Microsoft and tried running and failed. The message states "The installation of this package failed".

Access 2007 : Automatic numerical sequence and multiple past
now I must use Access 2007 ( some days ago I use Access 2003 ).

In access 2003 there is a utility function for numerical sequence.
For example if I write "1" in a row, "2" in the next row and I press the botton "arrow down", Access continue with the correct sequencial in the next rows ( "3". "4". etc.)
Why in Access 2007 this function don't works?

Another question.
I read that in Access 2007 I can copy and past cells like excel.
For example I select a cell. Press Ctrl+C for copy it, after I select a lot of cell and press Ctrl+V for paste. The selected cells are fillet with the copy cell.
It's possible this function

pastespecial method of range class failed
I am working on a program with multiple excel files, copying the same cells off each one, and adding the transpose of all of them to a table in access. The programming is in vba in access.

However, the pasteSpecial method isn’t working for me, and I’m always getting a “pastespecial method of range class failed”. I tried a lot of things already but nothing seems to work.

So I tried something simpler, simply adding values to an excel document, copying and pasting the transpose two cells over with the pasteSpecial. But it’s STILL not working. When I run the program, the excel sheet opens and I see the data, I see it's copied, and the cell E1 is selected, but it's not pasting.

I can go in and manually press pasteSpecial, transpose. and is consistently throwing the "pastespecial method of range class failed" error.

Access 2007 - Chart Updating Issue
Is there a vba function that causes a chart in Access 2007 to update or refresh? I am seeing new data within the table (XBar1), this is the same table that is selected under the chart's properties for "Row Source".

I have "Automatic" selected under the chart's "Update Options" property. The only way to get the chart to update to this table isto close the form and re-open it, I'd like this same functionality but at the end of my vba macro,

"Enable automatic reconnect" possible with VBA?
I had the problem that Access lost the connection to my MySQL db after a certain time period. Previously I connected via

Constr = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=" & Server & _ ";port=" & Port & ";user=" & user & ";Password=" & pw & ";Database=" & Datenbank"

Now I connect via DNS set up in the windows control panel. There I checked the box "enable automatic reconnect". With the box checked the connection gets not broken anymore which is great. Now I would like to implement "enable automatic reconnect" in VBA so users of my application do not have to set up a DNS in Windows

Access 2010 adp bugs
I had a working adp that started life in Access 2003, was successfully upgraded to Access 2007, and has now been "upgraded" to Access 2010. A number of issues have arisen, all of which seem like Access 2010 bugs to me.

The Access 2007 version and the Access 2010 version are both connecting to the same SQL Server 2008 database. The issues only exist in Access 2010.

* A form which used Me.OrderBy to sort the recordsource crashed Access 2010 after working fine in Access 2003 and 2007.
* Settings for a form's InputParameters which worked fine in Access 2003 and 2007 now crashed Access 2010.
* Access 2010 incorrectly decided that a foreign key id field in a form "cannot be updated because it is an autonumber". In this particular case, the problem does NOT occur if the record source is "Select P.* From dbo.Payment P", which is the table containing an actorID foreign key.

Access 2007 Crashes with ADODB Recordset
I have this really irritating problem with access 2007:
the following code causes access 2007 to crash every time and I have no idea why

Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset With rs
.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
.CursorType = adOpenKeyset
.LockType = adLockOptimistic End With rs.Open "TBL_DOC"

Whenever I try and instance a recordset from anywhere in VBA I get a cryptic error message "Access has stopped working" and access proceeds to shut down - no other info
It also happens if I try to use a variable to hold a select statement

I am running win 7 and Access 2007 all fully updated. I hjave tried ActiveX data objects 2.7, 2.8 and 6.0 in the vb references and the same happens.
File format is 2007

This can occur if you do not have the necessary permission to install microsoft office access on this computer.

Special Characters in Access 2007
I'm working on a database that has fields filled in with sizes (I.e. 1.5", 2", 3", etc.). I know the " shouldn't have been used but it was.

When writing a query to show only 1" items I get the message "The expression you entered has an invalid string." I usually can get past this by putting the " in brackets (like this ["]) and I could go on, but now that I am using access 2007 (was on 2003) I get this message; "The expression you entered contains invalid syntax."

I've tried to manually add the outside quotes but that doesn't seem to work. When I look up the second message it gives the special character fix, using brackets.
