Form won't open correctly if there is no data

P: n/a
On our client database, we have two main forms - Personal Information
and Practice Information. We just upgraded to Office XP and now when I
try to enter a new client (I first input the personal information then
click a button to take me to the practice information) it won't fully
open the practice information form. It show the header with the title
bar and other buttons, but the area that should house the form and
subforms is just grey with no fields showing. What's wrong with it?

The detail section of your form will be completely blank if both these are
true:
a) There are no records to display, and
b) No new records can be added.

Typically, a) is true if you filter the form or open it with a
WhereCondition that has no matches.

b) is true if you set the form's AllowAdditions property to No, or if it is
based on a read-only query.
