Form Won't Display in Form View

P: 4
I'm a relatively new Access user and developed a form that looks great in design view. However, when I click on Form View nothing shows up on the screen, only the form header is displayed without all of the fields and controls that I had added to the form in Design View. Does anyone have any tips/thoughts about this?

Thank you!

This is normal behavior in Access when

There are no records in the form's underlying Record Source and AllowAdditions/AllowEdits Properties are set to No.

Either change these properties to Yes or open your table/query and enter a single record.
