    No objects in view (2003)

    For some strange reason, all my DB objects disappeared from the window. Nothing I can do makes them show up again. Does anyone know what causes this?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Mark

    Have you tried:

    Tools | Options | View and select Hidden Objects

    Apply | OK

    Try switching to Details view.
    If that doesn't help:
    - Select Tools | Options...
    - Activate the View tab.
    - Tick the check box 'Hidden objects'.
    - Click OK.
    Does that help?

    Thanks Jerry,
    I tried that and I still cannot see anything in the DB window. I know it is the file that has the problem as I can open another and it works.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Hans,
    Also no luck with that. This is the first time I have ever had a problem like this...

    Thanks,

    Hi Mark

    Doesn't sound good. How about trying to import all the objects into a nice clean crisp Access shell.....could that be an answer. Alternatively ( no guarantee)...close the database down and whilst holding the shift key down open it again...this bypasses any run time macros etc...worth a try.

    Hi Jerry,
    I can open the DB and it works normally. If I use the shift-double click to open in design mode, I get nothing in the window.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Another strange thing is that the vertical scroll bar appears but I can't make it scroll up, it always remains at the bottom.

    Thanks,

    Re: No objects in view (2003)

    I'd try Jerry's suggestion of importing all database objects into a blank new database. You'll have to set the startup options again (if any), and non-standard references in the Visual Basic Editor (if any).

    OK

    Try my other option, open up a fresh access database with nothing in it and try to import objects into it, you can sometimes see the objects through this method.

    Have you tried a compact and repair on it <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    You could try Ctrl+Home or if that doesn't help, Ctrl+End.
