Sorry: That should be Tools, Options, View tab, check system objects. Be very careful with changes to any of these tables. Make a backup first or you may lose your database.

I already have that setting.  I can see it, but I can't change it.

Check Security tab in Tools - User and Group permissions. When you list tables, and check MSSysQuery you have to have update, insert, and delete permissions.

Well, we're on the same wave-length.  I've already done that, too, but I still can't make any changes to the msysqueries table.

I opened a new database.  Imported and/or linked all my tables, queries, forms and macros and everything was straightened out.  The corruption in the msys files were cleaned-up with the new database.
