Forms not displaying in 'Form View' with ODBC connection to SQL TableHelpful Member!

If created an ODBC connection to some SQL Tables and created forms from the fields on these tables.  When I select form view or even layout view the form appears totally blank.  

These forms worked when they were connected to local tables.

I do see the tables in the 'tables' section in Access 2010.

thanks for your help!!

Are your forms in Data Entry mode?
Do the tables all have primary keys?
Are the record sources just tables or queries?
- If they are queries, can you share the SQL views?
