Frontend Access abends between table accesses

I have a number of applications that use MS Access as a frontend application and Oracle as the backend database. The Access applications are linked to the Oracle tables. When I am developing in the Access applications, Access abends whenever there has been more than about five minutes time between table accesses. This is a major problem if I am testing a query and haven't saved it. Why does this happen? And, how can I stop this from happening?

My guess is it's an ODBC timeout. Try checking your ODBC DSN for your Oracle connection and look at the properties to see if there is a timeout value that can be changed upward to eliminate the problem.
