Can't print or do the print preview in Access 2003

Windows XP


  • 1. Computer acting crazy
    I am running Windows XP on my home computer and I have had the computer for about 3 months. all of the sudden yesterday the computer powered itself on. I shut it off and it has powered itself back on a few times since then. Does anyone know why this would happen. Could there be some sort of timer that I may have activated that powers the computer on by itself? I did notice that there is an app that pulls up for my motherboard, it is called easy tune and it monitors the board and its functions and there is also an edd software for my modem that pulls up and says its enabled. I unplugged the phone line from the modem on saturday and the computer did not power on by itself at all, I then plugged the phone line back in on Sunday and it powered itself on a couple of times. the computer powers on and the 2 programs I mentioned are the only ones running. There is no internet connection but somehow the phone line being plugged in has something to do with it. I am never in the room when it actually powers on, so I dont know if it connects to the internet and then disconnects itself. One thing I forgot to mention is that I was infected by the blaster worm in august. I removed it using the tools from Symantecs website and I downloaded the patch from Microsofts website. this is the only virus/worm I have gotten. does anyone know if this could have something to do with it?
  • 2. Malfunctioning CD burner
    My CD burner is unable to burn CDs. I deleted the driver, and when that re-installed I was able at least to play CDs from the burner. It still does not burn. It runs, but does not allow you to shut it down, nor allow any other operation. The commuter must be manually shut down. Does anyone know what sort of a problem this might be? Geoff.
  • 3. The ICF Fire wall
    I followed MS directions to disable the ICF firewall that works to protect programs from use by others on the internet but when I went there to disable it it showed it was never on yet I can't access my programs without right clicking and using the run as function and disabling the protect my programs etc... if it's not turned on how do I get it off my system?

You must have a printer installed to have this feature enabled. Without any 
printer installed on your computer you cannot preview anything.

2.Access 2003 Tab Control Print or Print Preview Memory Leak

When running the built in Print or Print Preview menu commands on a form 
with an embedded tab control that has many fields on several tab pages, Print 
or Print Preview will appear to hang the machine and while running consumes 
vast amounts of memory. I can reproduce this with a simple mdb that only has 
an unbound form. The memory allocated to MSAccess would normally be around 
15-20Mb, however during print preview on this Tab embedded form the memory 
allocated rises upto 256+MB.
I have had to work around this withTab control "Display when" property set 
to "Screen only" and using copies of the tab control's fields on the main 
form with "Display when" property set to "Print only" and copying the fields' 
data on the form_current and tabcontrol_change events.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

3.Can't design/preview/print reports in Access 2003 and it's not

Have you tried changing the default printer? Maybe Access in this installaion 
just does not like that print driver.

4.Print page setup, print, preview does not work on Internet Explorer 7 and outlook 2003

Two PC at the same time running MacAfee security would not allow
internet access and MacAfee could not run the Virus program . By
manual removing MacAfee the PC's were able to get internet access
again. But all HTML document can't be printed from outlook or IE7. All
print function in a html (page setup, print, preview) cause the
application to hang.  No window comes up.  No other error.  All other
program file type print (word, excel, pictures, pdf)
It was also noted that in explorer when Search is selected none of the
information in the left hand side is displayed. 
Another event that happens now at boot  to follow this problem is
MSFWHLPR  "Driver detected an internal error in its data structures
Action taken;
Reinstall windows SP2, ran office 2003 repair, reinstall updates and
removed and replaced IE7 
Thank you in advance for your advice on how to attack this problem.

5.Print Preview --> Print MSAccess 2003

I am doing calculations and running totals and populating unbound controls.
Should these calcs be in On Format or On Print?

The symptom I am getting is that navigating through the Print Preview is OK 
(totals are explicitly set to 0 in Report Header), but if I then use Print, 
the calcs are firing again, for each time I press print.
The incorrect result is Only on the printed version, the screen version 
rermains correct.
