Forms, reports, queries, etc. missing in database window

P: n/a
Max
I am editting a database created in access 2003 by another programmer.
This person has left the company for which the database was created and
no documentation. So that I could work on this database at home, I
have converted this db to 2000 which is the version I have i have on my
computer.

The problem is that none of the forms, reports, queries are visible in
the database window. The ones that have code could be accessed by
going to the vba editor and viewing the object. However none of the
other objects are visible. Now i know they are in the project
somewhere because I can open the reports, etc while running the
program. however I cannot edit them because they are not in the db
window. furthermore some tables and queries seem to be hidden.

Now even before I converted the db to 2000, this problem was apparent.
I just figured i would be able to figure it out. but i have not been
successful so far.

anyone know how I can find all of the objects in this project and make
them available to edit?

Hi,

Unsure of the exact wording but have you tried going Tools > Options > Show
hidden Objects on the view tab?

This should then show all tables/forms/queries etc.

Hope this helps.
