Hi,

I accidentally pressed something so now my menu bar at the top of the Access screen disappears whenever I am on the main design page. I have tried to restore the menu bar (i.e. with the sections -'Home', 'Create', etc)

Please advise.

Thank you.

Can you access your Menu? If so, go to View-Toolbars-Form Design.

No - all I see is Home/Create/External Data/Database Tools, and am unable to see all the sub-icons.

Right click over the area where the menu bar was ... do you see Customize ?

If so ... bring up the dialog box ... and be sure the Menu Bar is checked ...
