Access Database damaged
Posted on 2013-05-10
I am an MS Access programmer and I have a weired situation.
I can the main menu, but when I click the buttons to open other forms, no response. I can open the forms manually from the FORM section in ACCESS, but again the buttons that I have added to the forms are there but does not do anything when you click them. Strange enough, default Access default controls (such as Drop-down menu, record navigation buttons at the bottom of the form, Tabs) do still work
I opened one form in design view and opened "On Click Event Procedure" and found no code/VB associated with each button.
Fortunately I do have old-dated database files that I can import the forms from, but I like to know :
(1) what just happened and
(2) If it is a good idea to just import forms from a good previous database and continue to use this datbase or open the most recent database file and import tables/queries and etc from the damaged database. Obviously this involves more work.
