    Default Access DB Randomly Shutting Down

    So I have come across a very peculiar situation --

    I've developed an Access 2016 DB for my team -- there are about 10 end users -- each of them have their own executable on their respective desktops. The DB is Split -- the executable is the front end, and there is a separate MS Access back end.

    For one particular user -- his database will suddenly, without warning, shut down. There is no error message and no warning. It's as if a ghost suddenly executes 'DoCmd.Quit'

    None of the other users are having this issue. Everyone essentially has the same system -- same hardware, same operating system, same version of access. I've replaced his executable multiple times -- thinking that perhaps it became corrupted somehow. But it doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm at a loss.

    By chance, has anyone experienced anything like this? Perhaps there is a setting or requirement I'm missing? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Have you checked to see if he has the same Access version and Service Pack as everyone else?
    You may want to try looking for updates and updating his Access.
    Or perhaps reinstall Access and all updates on that computer (it could be a corrupt version of Access on his computer).
    1. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access
    2. Use the Search functionality on this board
    3. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.
