In Access 2003 I could go to forms in database window and copy a form and paste with another name to make a backup, before I started changing the first form.
In Access 2010 I  dont seem to be able to do that.
Is there a way?

OK I found it. I think.
I copy the form and then click on "File" and select "Save object as".
Seems like a step backwards to me.

You can also open a form/report in design view then do a save as

Or you can do this in VBA:

Docmd.CopyObject

From the VBA help Files:
Syntax:
expression.CopyObject(DestinationDatabase, NewName, SourceObjectType, SourceObjectName)

See the VBA Help files for more info and a sample code snippet.

Or you can install my Extras Plus add-in, which works with Access 2010 (as well as earlier versions), and allows you to make copies of database objects with incrementing numbers (among other features).  It can be downloaded from this link:

This works almost as good as Access 2003, where you can left click copy right click paste.
But this is easy enough.
Thanks for the other accurate tips.
