With switchboard can't navigate records with form

Hi all,
I have have been lucky to get some good advice in regards to some access questions I have had so far. The good news is I am almost done with this project but I seem to have hit another bump in the road. I have all my tables designed, I have all my forms made and working, and then I added in a switchboard as a central point of navigation using the default switchboard tool in access. When I open a form up through the switch board, I can no longer navigate through records I have already entered, using the default buttons on the bottom. I can still enter in new data, and it is saves in the table just how it should. If I close the switchboard and bring up the form, I can navigate through records just fine and everything works as it should. So, the question is, why is this happening and / or what should I be looking at to fix this. I have exhausted my little bit of access knowledge trying to figure this out and I am hoping that it is something easy that I am over looking. Any help is much appreciated!

Oh, I am using access 2003 if helps at all.

Thank You

You need to check the code behind the "form open" buttons on your switchboard; I suspect the form is being opened in a Add Mode, which means you can only add new records, not work with existing records. You should have chosen Edit Mode, which would have allowed both. You should be able to go back into the switchboard manager and change this. How switchboards created with the switchboard manager do things is very limited and sometimes confusing, which is why most people use a standard form for their "switchboard," giving them more control over how things are accomplished.
