Question print preview issue

I need a little help here.

I'm not exactly sure what happened, because my database isn't that complex.

I added a "print preview" button to a report that does just that, shows the print preview. The issue I'm having is that I can't do anything in Access after I click that button. Everything in Access seems to stop working, I can't click on anything with my mouse. the only thing that does anything is that i can move the report up and down with the up/down/left/right keys. If I click on a different application that isn't Access (i.e. excel, spotify, email, etc.) and then go back to it, everything works fine.

Has anyone else ever run into this problem?

Re: print preview issue

It is just a simple macro to "print preview," and after i click that button, everything just stops working except the capability to move the page up and down using my arrow keys.

Re: print preview issue

just gave it a try, still run into the same problem. i found out that when i hit the escape button, it then prompts me message:

"Microsoft Access has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

It just seems weird that adding a print preview button to a report would cause access to do this.
