Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I am no longer able to open up my ACT! database as the message comes up: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

 

 No problem opening the demo database.

 

Any one any ideas please of how to work past this...?

 

Many Thanks

Hello Paul,

There is more than one possible reason why this error would occur when opening a database. Please see the "Opening A Database" section in KB 24350 for list of the those reasons and suggested solutions.

Re: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I use to experience this a great deal in 2007 and experienced it for the 1st time recently in 2010.

 

I was doing a large number of field replacements in Companies - and it threw up this error. No harm done - I excited, came back in and the replacement took place.

 

I usually find, whatever you try to do, gets executed and this error pops up - exiting and re entry seems to work?????
