    playing audio from Access form is interfering with click events

    Hi all.

    I've done a lot with Access forms in recent years, but I don't often work with sound.
    I wanted an Access form with some buttons to click and the ability to play audio files, to which the user clicks various buttons.
    I started out with PlaySound and wav files, but there was some unpredictable behavior.
    I switched to the Windows Media Player ActiveX control and MP3 files, but there is also unpredictable behavior.

    Essentially, the click events of the buttons stops responding, then some of the Dimensioned variables are cleared from memory.
    I've seen Access clear variables before, but I don't understand what is making click events not fire.

    I know this is generic and no code provided, but what are the possibilities?
    I remember vaguely a database once where error messages were permanently disabled somehow and nothing would make an error pop up, so the VBA would just continue onward executing code as if the error didn't happen.
    I combed through that code numerous times and never saw what caused it. Just wondering if this is a case where an error is causing the events to be skipped, and I'm just not seeing the error.

    On a related note, what way is there to prevent variables from being cleared? I Dim them at the top of the VBA editor as usual, not sure what makes them clear out sometimes.

    Try playing the audio files asynchronously.
    Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
    sking for help isn't giving up. Its refusing to give up.
