MS Access 2010 - Navigation Pane Problem - Can't get "Modules" Group to Appear

I want to start using VBA modules (something I have never done before), but the "Modules" group does not show in the Navigation Pane along with Tables, Forms, Queries, Macros, etc.

I verified carefully that it is checked in the Navigation Options dialog box, but I just can't get it to appear in the Navigation Pane so I can work with VBA.  

Any ideas?  Many thanks in advance.

otherwise Alt F11 was used in excel if I recall correctly

The group will only be there is already at least one code module.

As jo implies, you can open the VBA editor with Alt+F11. Once there, use the Insert menu item to add a Code module

You have to create either a standard module or a class module and then save it for it to appear in the navigation pane. The VBA associated with the Forms or Reports will not appear in the Modules navigation pane.

Direct access to the VBA environment is Alt-F11 as mentioned by jo_m above. You can also use the Alt-F11 to switch back to the Access window. Handy if you want to open both full screen on a single monitor and quickly switch between the two.

From WallyTee:  It worked!  Many thanks.  I simply created and saved a new VBA module (my very first) and that fixed the Navigation Pane problem.   Many thanks again.   WallyTee.
