Problems With Forms

P: 7
I've tried to make a form using the wizard in Access 2003, but when i go to display it, the fields dont show, its just the background, im not sure whether its because i've tried to add a subform to it, im a lil new to access so any help would be appreciated
Thanks,
Sam

This problem is usually the result of having a form that

a) Has no records

b) Cannot have new records added

Reasons that new records cannot be added include

a) AllowAdditions for the form is set to No

b) If the problem form is being used as a subform, and the main form's
AllowAdditions is set to No

c) The form is based on a query that is read-only

If the form is based on a multi-table query, you can open the form independently and test to see if you can add a record.

Check out the things I've listed and get back to us.
