    "You can't carry out this action at the present time"

    I spent may hours (and $35) with Microsoft on this issue.
    I think it may be a MS bug... but they say no.
    Anyway, this eror can occur Anywhere!!
    Seems most common in (linked) subforms.

    Bsically (as best I can tell from MS), this happens when ACCESS is BUSY
    (hung up??? Looping?? stuck accessing a file??). ACCESS is doing
    SOMETHING (though God knows what) in the background.

    So ACCESS cant do anything else!
    ACCESS hangs!
    No way out!
    Still is 'active' even after "ctrl-alt-del" to get out.

    This error is happening to people ALL OVER.
    Complain to MicroSoft.
    We need a better error message to help track what is the
    offending issue.

    I still think its an ACCESS bug.... as I can NOT track the error... no
    matter how many times it happens.

    My "issue" is still OPEN with MicroSoft, although currently Inactive.
