    New form is blank in form view (Access 2000)

    I've made a new form with the wizard, and it looks perfect in design view, but is just one big, gray, empty frame in form view. Anyone know what is going on and how to fix it?
    Thanks

    A couple of possibilities - is it bound to a table that has data in it? Is so, are the controls set to be visible? If neither of those apply, give us more details on how you built the form with the wizard so we can identify other possible problems.

    I believe this can happen when a form is bound to a query or table and there is no data in the underlying record source (table or query), and the form is set to NOT accept new records.
