Hi EE,

Below is a screen shot of an accdb when it opens

       the design button is greyed out

Can you pls walk me through the steps of opening the query in design view:

    - double click query - opens in view mode to see the record set
    - the design button is clickable
    - then click on design icon in left upper corner


In A2003,  the design icon was alway available when opening the mdb

   i would single click the object and then click the design icon
             w/o having to open the object first

                    ( in a 2010, i put the design icon in the quick start, did you do the same?)

pls advise....

tx for your help, sandra
