Don't Be THAT Guy

This one will be short. A few weeks ago I decided to update an old application I created a few years ago for a friend. It was created with Access 2002. The new version is in Access 2010 and it showcases a few 2010 specific features, as well as an updated table structure. I worked on it off and on over a couple of weeks. One night I was tweaking a form when Access threw an error, informing me it had experienced a problem and had to close. It allowed me to make a backup of the file and closed gracefully. That's not too uncommon, and most of the time recovery means finding the problem and correcting it before moving on.
