    In one of my Dbs all the command buttons have changed color to a two tone grey; very light grey on top half and light grey on bottom half. This is in Vista. Only on this one Db, all other Dbs are fine. Same thing happens to this Db on another Vista computer. But in XP the buttons appear in one color - almost white. I'm using Access 2003.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Regards,
    Peter

    Activate the Form/Report tab.
    Is the setting for "Use Windows Themed Controls on Forms" different between these databases?

    That did it; I turned that off and all is well.
    I'm amazed that you would know this obtuse bit of info. Incredible!
    THANKS HANS AGAIN - AGAIN.
