Expand Indicator Not Showing in Datasheet View

I have an Access 2000 database which has several tables linked together using the Relationship Manager.  I can view the table in Access 2000, and the Expand Indicator (little "+" sign) appears as the leftmost column, allowing me to view the related data.

When I open this same file in 2007, the Expand Indicator does not appear.  I have converted the database to 2007 format, and that does not work either.

To be specific, I expect to double click a table name in the Tables group, have it appear in Datasheet view, and show the Expand Indicator as the leftmost column.

Why does it not work?  Where do I go to make it appear?

the value of the SubdatasheetName property can be set to a specific table or query in the database; or it can be set to None, in which case no subdatasheet will be created. To return to the default behavior, set the value of the SubdatasheetName property to Auto.

It seems that Access 2007 doesnt like to deal with linked tables for subdatasheets.
