Subform won't allow additions on 2010 but works fine on 2007

I developed a database on MS Access 2007 and it's been working fine on many machines for many years. We have now copied the front end file to a new machine that is running MS Access 2010 and I am having a problem on one of the subforms. The subform will not allow new records to be added. The front end was just copied straight accross - no changes - from a 2007 machine to a 2010 machine. All the settings appear normal. Does anyone know what may have changed in 2010 to cause this strange behaviour?

Can you confirm that other aspects of the app are working normally- you can add/modify/delete records in other forms, for example.

Do you get any errors if you Debug>Compile the app?

No errors when I compile and I haven't found any other peculiarities. It appears that this is the only form that is playing up.

it would be ideal if you could post a file containing the problem form & associated tables/queries.

If you can't do that then at least create for yourself a new database and import just the form and any required tables/queries to see if the problem persists.

If it does then we need to know (at least the following)..
-the sql of the recordsource for the subform
-the link fields between the main form and the subform
-any code in the subform
-the exact nature of the problem- can you move to a new record? do you get any error messages, for example.

1. Normally it is recommended that you create a new blank database in the newer version (2010) then import all the objects from the 2007 DB.

2. What happens if you just created a new subform from scratch?

Sorry about my delay getting back to this. I have been inundated with work plus had a sick day. I will see if I can do a few tests this weekend and respond.

I've had a change of jobs and so finding time to resolve this on a machine that has MS Office 2010 is proving impossible. I will need to close this question and raise it again when I have time to follow it through.

In fairness your answers haveanswered my question - there is nothing known that has changed in 2010 that would be causing this problm.
