I want to create a Navigation Form. On the ribbon, in the Create Group, in the Forms Group, the Navigation Form button is not enabled. Why, please?

You can only create a Navigation form if your database is in the .accdb format.

The kicker here is that once you convert to the .accdb form, prior versions of access may not recognize the Nav Form...

Note that you can create a simple Form with command buttons wizard to simulate the navigation form, then you can stay in the .mdb format

Thanks, Jeffery. I saved as an ACCDB (it alerted me that there is no backward compatibility - which is OK for me).  Much appreciated.

I was just letting you know in case you had a few rogue users who were still on older Access versions.
