    Access Toolbox Not Working (Access 2002 sp-2)

    For some reason, my Toolbox controls stops working. I can't drag a control (such as combo box, text field etc.) from the Toolbox untoa Form or Report. I tried with a new form and also a new report (as well as the old ones). I can see the Toolbox but just can't drag from it. I rebooted the computer as well. Its probably something real obivious but I'm missing it. It used to work fine.

    Do you have the same problem in a new, blank database?
    If so, try Help | Detect and Repair...

    Yes, I have the problem with a blank database. I tried the Detect and Repair function and ran into a problem. Apparently I need to find the original installation disk ( I have several Office XP (legal) disks) but the program wants one with Frontpage with it because it can't find a Proplus.MSI on the regular Office XP Pro installation disk. I needed to sort them out anyways.

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I found the correct disk (it was the Developer Installation disk). Unfortunately, so far nothing has fixed the problem. I ran the Detect and Repair program and it ran successfully but didn't fix the problem. I tried reinstalling the program and that didn't do it. I did an uninstall and re-install of Office XP. Still no joy. Also installed the Service Pack 3 and still doesn't work. I wondering if there is a registry key that didn't clear on the uninstall. Tomorrow I will try again. It now works, I guess the re-installation did it. Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for your help.
