View "as List" hangs

Hi there,

I’ve been having some trouble with one of my databases. If I attempt to set the view to “as List”, the application hangs with a beach ball. The other views work just fine. This has been going on for quite some time.

Any ideas?


You might have a corrupted document, or other database error. Run Verify & Repair and fix any any errors found. If that does not resolve the problem, Tools > Rebuild the database.

Thanks for the assistance. That worked.

I’m confused about why it worked. In the past I’d tried to verify and rebuild. It never helped. Yesterday I rebuilt but didn’t verify. Today, I followed your advice and verified. The verify reported no issues; it just flashed a small window for a moment. I didn’t follow through with a rebuild. But now it seems to be fixed.

Any thoughts on that?

Sorry, without seeing your database it is just speculation.

Again, thanks for your help. It will really make a difference.
