Slow performance when user opens an object with Name AutoCorrect enabled in Microsoft Access

View products that this article applies to.


If a database has the Name AutoCorrect feature enabled, users may experience a delay when they try to open database objects.

↑ Back to the top


When using a secured database with Name AutoCorrect enabled, the current user must have design permissions on the object to enable Name AutoCorrect to track, fix, and log the binding errors when an object is opened. If a user does not have design permission on an object that Name AutoCorrect is trying to change, the changes occur every time that the user opens the object because the user does not have permissions to ever save the changes.

Have a user who has permissions to modify the design of the object open the object. Then the changes will be permanent.

If the Track name AutoCorrect info text box is selected (checked), the Name AutoCorrect feature is in use for the database.
