Access Version 2305 Build 16.0.16501.20074: "There isn't enough memory to perform this operation"

Copper Contributor

When generating a report of eny kind, we are receiving a prompt stating "There isn't enough memory to perform this operation.  Close unneeded programs and try the operation again.  


I then moved the data files of the MS application to a 3rd-party server, and had no issues opening the reports (using a non-updated version of MS Access: Access for 365 MSO (16.0.11328.20438) 32-bit.  We are now experiencing this same issue in 3 individual servers, all operating different data sets.  The current build on the 3 servers having the issue is is Microsoft® Access® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2305 Build 16.0.16501.20074) 32-bit.  Any suggestions on solutions?

Apparently this is effecting all version of Access 365 which have a split data backend and user front end. Only solution I have found on support sites is to un-install current version of Access 365 and reinstall version And this one has that issue: Microsoft® Access® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2305 Build 16.0.16501.20074) 32-bit or prior.



Yes, you are not alone. This problem has been discussed for a few days in various forums like Answers and here in the comments of the latest bug fix blog article.


Microsoft is informed and investigating the case. We will also publish an article about it on AFo soon to inform about the current status.
