Hi, I am practicing office 2010 access.
Steps:
1) Create a blank database.
2) Create a blank form.
3) Click Design on the Ribbon.

The lowest three buttons are: "Set Control Defaults", "Use Control Wizwards" and "ActiveX Controls".
I want to click the Active Controls button. But it is grayed out. Only "Use Control Wizards" is available.
