Links and conditional formatting quit working in Access

We have been using an .accdb file with linked tables for some time. The file opens in a 'Split Form'. In the list view each record contains a link to open that record in the form view.  Each record also has a field(cell) which uses conditional formatting to color the background yellow if the field is empty.

Recently, if we open the file in  MS-Access 2010 the link text and background color are missing. If I open the file in MS-Access 2013 everything looks normal.

Anyone have an idea of what to check or why the link text and background color have stopped showing up in Access 2010?

In a split form, you don't need links per se.  Just selecting a row in the datasheet portion will make that record's data appear in the form portion.  Where is the link text and the control with the background color that is having the problem?  In the form portion?  Can you post the database, or at least a screen shot of the split form?

Sorry for the slow response. I had forgotten the rule, ...reboot. After letting the SQL and Terminal Servers update I did a reboot and now everything is working normally.
