I have a database which was created in Access 2000 format and is still being maintained in this format.
I have made numerous little changes to it over the past few months.
It is used in higher versions of Access up to 2010.
I have now made a small change to a form and although it still works perfectly in Access 2000 and 2002/3 I get a message from Access 2007 that it does not find the form although the name of the form is still visible, but does not open.
I also get a message that a module is missing.
There is security enabled on the file.
Any pointers please?
.  Message received although file name is there

1.  Compact and repair
2.  Press ALT F11 to bring up the code, then click debug and compile your database.  If the compile fails it will tell you where the error is.

Or, create a blank new Access 2000 format DB in Access 2007 and import all the objects...

Sorry for the delayed response.
I really appreciate the prompt responses.
Although I found the responses helpfull, it did not solve my problem. I might have to phrase it differently.
I am still looking for the reason for my problem, but I hope to find that by tomorrow.
In the mean time I could import the unaltered form from an older backup, so the system is running,
I will give feedback by tomorrow.

Are you looking for the reason, or are you looking for a solution... or both...

The reason:
 We cant know for sure unless you post a sample of the DB.
But in a nutshell, it sounds like the db is corrupting

The solution:
"import the unaltered form from an older backup'... as you stated
