Where are the forms? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using Access 2003 but now I am forced to use Access 2010 and the ribbon at one location.

    When I open my mdb file in what I think is called database mode, there are no objects visible! Where are they?

    I am used to seeing a list of object types (forms, reports etc.) on the left, and clicking on one of them shows the list of objects of that type. But when I open Access 2010 at our other location I can't see or find any of the objects. Where are they?

    How did Microsoft hide them, and how do I get them back?

    Thanks in advance for any help.  --Fred

  • Hi Fred,

    Do they show back up if you hit the F11 key? If so, go to File > Options > Current Database > Navigation Options and make sure Display Navigation Pane is checked.

    Hope it helps...
