How to unhide Tables & Reports

P: 91
Hi Everyone,

I have an old access mdb file. But i can;t see the tables & reports in it. The only thing visible is the data entry form. is there a way to show the tables in it. Most of the options also are not available in the MENU bar.

When you open the database, try holding down the shift key. Then on the menu you should be able to access options to show tables, etc.

Sorry I should have been more specific. Did you start holding down the shift button before the database was actually opened?

What version of Access are you using? I think most of the methods that could have been used to secure the database are listed here, and many should apply to previous versions.
