    Delete form in access (Access 97)

    I have a form in Access that somehow became corrupt. I want to delete it. Every time I try Delete under Edit, it runs forever and I have to end the task. How can I get rid of this bad form?

    Did you try to delete the form by selecting Form under objects (where you see tables, queries, forms, etc.,) and deleting the name of the form. Deleting the form by name should remove it from the main form (It sounds as if you are having a problem with a subform.) You can then re-create the form and re-insert it as a subform if needed.
    Regards,

    If you can't delete it from the database window, your database is corrupted, and the best thing to do is to import everything except that form into a new database. I've had it happen to me before.
