ODBC connection issue for SQL Server 2005 Express

I have a Access 2010 frontend connected to a SQL Server 2005 Express backend.  

I was able to use Access 2010 to migrate my tables using ODBC to the SQL Server.

I can open my Access 2010 frontend.  I am able to open tables, run queries, and open some forms and see data.  

However, when I open one form, I get a ODBC failed message.  

This does not make sense to me that it would connect and show me data from all tables but not show me information on this one form.

Please help.

  There are a number of things that might cause this; type of locking, the recordset is not editable, problem with a specific field type in one of the tables, etc.

  Where/When exactly are you getting the error message?

 You'll need to drop in some code then on the error handler for the OnLoad event or possibly the forms OnError if this is an error that Access is generating rather then your code:

 Subsequent errors in the errors collection should give you an idea what's wrong.
