Unable to modify switchboard in Microsoft Access 97.

Unable to modify switchboard in Microsoft Access 97.

Unable to modify switchboard in Microsoft Access 97.

I have a very extensive database that was working fine one day. However, now I am unable to modify the switchboard. The following message appears: "The Switchboard Manager was unable to find a valid switchboard in the database. Would you like to create one?" When you select yes, it creates a duplicate of the one that I am using, but I can not add any databases to the switchboard. Any suggestions of how to change my existing switchboard, without recreating everything?

RE: Unable to modify switchboard in Microsoft Access 97.

Can you find the Switchboard in your table tab and your MSysObjects table? Possibly it's corrupted. You could try exporting it to another database then re-import it. This rebuilds the entry in MSysObjects.
