Windows 7: An error occurred while loading Form in Access database

An error occurred while loading Form in Access database

In our company we decided to upgrade our old Access 2003 at last. And after this upgrading I can’t load any .mdb files. They are inaccessible. Every attempt to open it is accompanied by an error: “An error occurred while loading Form_FormName. Do you want to continue?” If I click Yes, then pops up another error: “Invalid procedure call or argument”. Colleagues tell me that it a cause of corruption and that the cause is upgrading of the Access I want to know, is it true? Which follow-up actions do we make?

Hi Quetzal, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Later versions of Access use an .accdb suffix & not the .mdb suffix & this is the cause of your problem. As you mentioned updating from Access 2003 I assume you are now using Access 2013, so these websites might help you.
In the first one scroll down to the links contained in it & follow those as well. The second one may not be relevant but it does contain some info that might be of interest to you.

@ Quetzal

Repairing & Compacting the database is a good idea. To do that open your new Access database & then click on File & when that opens there is a box that says Compact & Repair Database, click on that, then return to the database.

To convert your existing .mdb files to the newer .accdb files follow the instruction in this MS website.

Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?
According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes? So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have...
