Hello @EMAqua,


Runtime Error: Code 3048 happens when Microsoft Access fails or crashes whilst it's running or due to the installation of the update.


Therefore, right now, the only reliable solution seems to be to go back to the earlier version of Microsoft Access.


You must temporarily disable Office updates to prevent Office from automatically installing the new update.


I hope this helps.
