Lost my "add new record" icon in navigation bar

23 New Member
In my form, which contains a subform, I have lost the "add new record" icon for my master form (way at the bottom). I have tried adding a "add new record" command button to fix the situation, but when I try to use this command button, I get the following message: "You can't go to the specified record".

You probably set the subform to not allow additions.

That is not the problem. Remember, I cannot add items to my main form, not the subform.

Thanks anyway.

Then you probably set the main form to not allow additions. Or you're using a non-updateable query as your record source.

My main form allows edits/additions. I do not use queries in this database. My record sources are tables. It's very frustrating.

What's the file size of the database?

4.6 MB. I just started it. Don't want to add more to it until it works.

Zip and attach your database so we can take a look at it.

Cannot send you db because it contains confidential information. Sorry.

It's up to you of course. If you need the help then you will do the work to strip out the sensitive data and replace it with meaningful, but dummy, data. Full instructions can be found at Attach Database (or other work).
