Plesase see the image and answer my question: "Is it possible to somehow make MS Access 2007 display SQL statement that is in the query (Immediate Window displays it) rather than concoction of its (Access'es) own? In the image you can see what I want (in Access 2003) and what I have (in Access2007).

This might be an issue specific to A2007.  (If it is, then it's not going to be fixed now).
In A2010 and A2013 I get the same layout in both views.

I've booted up an old machine which has Office2007 and I'm afraid I can't reproduce your problem there either.
Are you on the latest service release (I think it's sp3?)

Thanks, peter57r.
You gave me the idea that "yes, it can".
It appeared Version Control was to blame. I checked it out and... vuala!
