    Computer locks on a code error

    I am using W7 with A2007. Very often, when my code finds an error, I can't just fix it. The program locks up at the offending line. I then have to activate the task manager etc. I didn't have the problem in A2000. Is this a a2007 thing or is my system having a problem?. Any help much appreciate. I am about ready to fix my old computer and go back to something more stable.

    then you're working with an executable file. deploying an app into an executable with test running codes and procedures is not standard.

    check your stuff first!

    Good point, but I have tried the immediate window feature a few times but never seemed to see get the purpose. Maybe don't know how to use it correctly. I will make another effort. I should also use the run-time error trap procedure more, at least during development. With A2000, hangups were a rare occurrence. A2007 seems to be standing by just waiting for some excuse to lock up.

    Thanks for taking time to reply.
