MSAccess Datasheet view does NOT show all columns in Table

MSAccess Datasheet view does NOT show all columns in Table

(OP)
MSAccess works perfectly for all tables in my application.
I have ONE table that contains 52 columns and works WITHOUT error.
However, when I view the table in DATASHEET mode, I see only 16 columns. When I click to see DESIGN mode, all 52 columns are there.
If I do an insert with all 52 columns, it works without error.

I have tried to copy/rebuild/etc.... but the discrepancy between Datasheet and Design has not been resolved.
Any ideas?

I am using Access 2007 and cannot find the "Unhide Fields" option as you suggest. Can you tell me how to get to that screen?

Thanks.

This eventually worked. BUT... the key to success is the actual location of you mouse pointer when you click the RIGHT button. You will notice that depending on the location of pointer, you get a DIFFERENT list of options. To see the "Unhide Column" option, you need to RIGHT click when your cursor is located in an open area.
