Hi, Farhaad.
how can i enable a from's design view when it is disabled?
If you mean Design View is disabled in the Database Window or on the
Toolbar, then it's disabled because it's an MDE database file. Find the MDB
database file that this MDE file was made from and make your design changes
to that file, then recreate the MDE file and redistribute it to your users.

If you mean Design View isn't available on a form's pop-up menu, then you
need to open the form in Design View first (with the Database Window button
or the Toolbar button), enable the Shortcut Menu Property, and then ensure
that the shortcut menu used includes Design View.
