Choose switch to to activate the busy application and correct the problem". In windows XP everything is going fine. do you know how to fix this error ? help me?

    What is the other application? If you switch to it the busy application should get the focus. Also what version of windows and access are you having problems with? There can be some issues with using vb6 code in access vba, if that's what you're doing.
