need to look at tables, forms etc...

I have been given a Access application to improve.  However when I open the DB the application but I have no access to any buttons,  tables, forms, reports etc...   How do I get access to them.

RE: need to look at tables, forms etc...

I know there are other "tricks"

I usually hold the shift key while starting up the DB
I also know you can disable the shift key -..I'm sure some has a better idea if that doesn't work.

Good Luck

RE: need to look at tables, forms etc...

When you open the db, press F11 and that may reveal the objects in the database.

I had also created a db where you can't see tables and forms and such... but when I needed to edit it, I just press the F11 key and the db collections appear.
