I'm trying to add code to forms in an existing access db.  I open the VB editor and look in the object browser and don't see any of the DB objects.  How can i get these into the object browser?

I attached a screen shot of a DB that has the Class Objects and the DB where it's missing.

You mean the Project Explorer right, not the Object Browser ?

Click the + sign at the top ... where it says Microsoft Office Access Class Objects.

Microsoft Office Access Class Objects is not there.    In my Screenshot, I'm working with the 2nd project, Called "Project1".  How can I get the "Microsoft Office Access Class Objects" folder there?  The database has several forms.

To get the form in the project browser under the "Microsoft Office Access Class Objects" folder, I went into the design view of the form, right-clicked and selected 'Build Event..."

Choose builder came up, and I selected 'Code Builder' and the form shows up in the VB editor.

The question remains:  Why do I have to do this for each form?  Most of the time all of the Access objects are already in the editor.

You should not have to do anything.  I've never seen this issue ... ever.  All my objects show up.
