Design view Greyed out

P: 1
Hi all, I have an access database used by a colleague who has since left the company. My problem is that when i try to open the database even with the shift key the design view button is greyed out on the forms and reports. Can anyone tell me how i may be able to edit the forms. I think the problem could be because it is an MDE file if so can i edit it in anyway?

Nope, that is the entire problem. MDE's are read-only. You'll need to get your hands on the original MDB that it was generated from.
