Unable to see tables in an Access .mdb file
Posted on 2011-10-26
I've recently been assigned the task of converting a number of old Access applications, 2003, 2007, to Office Access 2010. There are dozens of them. When I hold the "shift" key down and open the database window, some object categories are missing... I can't see them. I know they're there because in some cases I can open the forms and "see" the underlying queries and tables but I can't get at them. Is there a way that I can "unhide" these objects? My suspicion is that these files have been compiled and some of the objects simply aren't updateable anymore. I've worked with Access for some time but I've never run accross this type of setup before. Thanks much in advance for your guidance.
