I do have large tables, (not large by SQL standards). But they are mostly
tall and thin.

Some of the times if is not a GPF but Paradox winks out.

I am leaning toward a certain form that has a notebook object.
When it gets focus or arrives on the tab, several objects update. The most
complex one was changed to SQL.

I have several other posts, it almost seems like moving source code to win7,
running OK, then move to win10 and fails.

There is definitely something unusual happening.

I would suspect a corrupt form, BUT in runs like a clock in win7.

usually due to problems with Index's - more than 50% full - and or 
What does that mean? I rebuild and compact often.

I am at a loss.

In my other post I described how I moved the function to a new form and call
that form. When the new form closes (after doing function perfectly), the
calling form crashes.
