Property sheet and Add Existing Fields

100+
P: 468
A funny thing has happened and I'm at a loss as to where to find the answer. I'm using Access 2007, My Property sheet and Add Existing Fields are in the command bar but when I click on either one I don't get them on my screen. I've checked all the edges because sometime you can move then and they seem to be gone.
Does any body have a clue as to what could have happened.

As you suggested in post #1, they could both be appearing off screen or on a secondary monitor if you have one.

Try increasing your resolution if possible.
Another trick that may help is to rotate your screen 90 degrees to the right then rotate it back again

I tried that and still nothing. The Property Sheet is already in the Command bar, just doesn't show up when clicked.

Ok, I switched the screen to Portrait and then back to landscape and that worked. Thanks so much.

I've heard something about that glitch before, too!

Thanks IslaDogs for assisting with this!

The screen rotation 'trick' has worked in a variety of problems.
Only recently it allowed someone else to recover the VBE menu bar that had been undocked and somehow moved off screen
