Don't want to save modules all the time

    Since Access 2000, when I select Save from the IDE, or close a form
    that's unsaved, I'm prompted to save all the unsaved forms and modules.
    This has caused me problems in the when a form's controls' properties
    have been changed at runtime. If I'm not careful, the runtime settings
    have gotten saved. Is there any way to change this behavior?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Sorry, that's how Access has worked since Access 2000. There's no way to
    change the behaviour.

    Knowing what Doug Steele said, I would include code that sets controls
    to their proper default states at the appropriate time.

    Martin (?),

    That's what I've done. Though some times that's inconvenient, since
    design-time settings might have to be stored somewhere else besides the
    property settings.

    Thank you both for the help.

    Aye, but even more inconvenient it is to have your design-time
    properties overwritten!

    PS glad to know this about A2K+
