Build Event for Edge Web Browser Control Crashes Access is Fixed

Updated: Sep 12


The Edge Web Browser control crashes Access when you try to create an event for it following these steps.

Add an Edge Browser Control to an Access form.

Choose Build Event from the Short Cut Menu, not from the Property Sheet.

One of two scenarios have been reported:

  • The VBA IDE flashes briefly, then Access crashes.

  • Access freezes then crashes with no error message.

Event Viewer records the application crash.

Originally reported on MS Tech Community


Access is unable to open the VBA IDE to create an event for the Edge Web Browser Control from the short cut menu entry point.


The fix was announced in the August 28, 2023 list of bug fixes on MS Tech. Version 2308 now works as expected.

Workaround: Use the Form's Property Sheet to create Event Procedures for the Edge Web Browser Control, rather than the right-click menu.
