List of objects at left of screen disappears

P: n/a
I have an Access database that suddenly opens without the list of
objects (You know, Tables, Queries, Forms, Reports . .) at the left of
the screen. The objects still exist - for instance, I can make the db
open with a particular form up - but it makes it hard to add new
objects. Compact/Repair database doesn't help - in fact, it might have
caused it. The db is just the program/form front end for a 350MB
data-containing database, and I noticed that it was taking up 400MB
instead of a few hundred KB and repaired it. It shrank properly but
what good is it if I can't get at its objects?

Thanks//Zeke Hoskin

Press the F11 key, does the database window open? Go to Tools|Startup... is
"Display Database Window" unchecked? Go to Windows|Unhide..., is the
database window listed as a hidden window?
