I seem to be missing my Expression Builder.

When I right click on a Form Detail area and choose "Build Event" all I see are Macro and COde???

Any ideas?

Or even a shortcut key?

Try opening up the Properties dialog box, then going to the Events tab.  Click the dropdown on the far right of the event you want to create and see if it gives you the "Event Procedure" option

Try this...

Open a form in Design View and click the ... next to On Click for a command button or other control on the form.  Are the options the same (just Macro and Code Builder)?

1. Is this Office 2003?, your screenshot there looks like a Vista or Higher OS, which sometimes means Office 2007 or higher.

2. Have you tried The Repair Utility in 2003?
    Help--> Detect and Repair.

3. ...Perhaps this is an "option" when you installed Access/Office?
I always do a "Full" install.
The default install is typically "Standard", so many people believe that the Standard install is a Full Install...
