Hi,
I've encountered a very strange behaviour:
an Access project I'm working on (mdb file) suddenly is all empty of code. the forms, queries and tables haven't changed, just no code at all in the forms. it's like it disappeared somehow.

does anybody have an idea what caused this and if there's a way to bring back all the code?
the Access version is Access 2003 and the mdb file is in access 2000 format.

thanks,
Nimrodon
