Access 2010 Group

In Access 2010, everytime I create a new table it creates a new subheading. I would like to move my tables under existing groupings then delete the old subheadings that Access has created. How do I do this? Many thanks.

For custom groupings, you should be able to drag and drop tables from one group to another.  Once a group is empty you can right-click and choose delete.

If you haven't created custom groupings it sounds like this is the way the tables and such are being shown in the panel.  If it says "Tables and Related Views" at the top of the navigation panel, click on this and choose "All Objects" instead.

This is what I thought. However I cannot drag and drop any item listed. The ones in the template nor the new ones I created. There is no "all objects" option that I can see. Do you think these have been disabled when the template I dowloaded was created? It is not a web template.

Maybe ... are you able to post an empty copy of the database?

What happens if you right-click the top menu item on the navigation pane and choose Navigation Options - do you see anything there that you can check/uncheck?

The easiest thing is for you to download this template http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/templates/CT010256691.aspx?tl=2#ai:TC010251225|. I am basically using this with added forms and fields and keeping most of the template intact.You will see from this template that the same thing applies.

The template appears to be sorting and grouping by "Tables and Related Views".  This makes sense that you can't drag and drop into other groups.  For example, trying to drag the All Contributors report into the Campaigns area wouldn't make sense, since it isn't related to the Campaigns table.  Access will only allow you to do this once the item has a relationship with the parent.

If I create a custom group (right-click on "All Tables" and choose Category --> Custom) I am able to drag anything I want into and out of my custom group.

To "get rid of" the groupings that Access is currently using, click the drop-down arrow next to "All Tables" and choose "Custom" to use your custom groupings and none of the default groupings.

Hopefully that helps!
