MDB and MDE

P: 3
In the company db when I am in VB edit I can view a form and its code.But when I go to Forms on the main screen I cannot see that form.
So in VB Edit mode i can see 176 forms but on the main front end I can only see 146. This indicates to me that 30 forms have been created by outside contractors in mde format.
How can I check to see if a form is in mde format ?

I think databases can be made into mde, not individual forms. You probably just have hidden forms.

In Access 2003
Tools > Options
Click on the View tab
There's a checkbox to view hidden items.

Thanks Rabbit
Looks like these forms where designed by a contrator then they hid them on the main screen.
Thanks
