Navigation Pane, missing all objects

After compacting and repairing my database, I noticed that all of my tables, queries and so on were missing from the Navigation pane in Access 2010.  I've tried to reset the Navigation options with no change.  Has anyone experience this before, and if so, can you offer a solution?

Thank you.

First, make a backup of the DB as it is now.

Then create a new DB and try to import all the objects form the old db.
If no objects are listed, ...then somehow the objects gt hosed...

Then you may want to try decompiling the db:

Then try creating another new db and importing all the objects...

Just as a sanity check, make sure you don't have anything entered in the 'Search' box on the Navigation Pane that would filter out all objects.

...and in reading mbizup post, I realized that you could have also accidentally "Hidden" all of the objects...

I have had this happen in A2013 but the objects were actually there.  Clicking on a few things woke up the nav pane and it then showed everything.

If objects are actually missing, you'll have to get a backup and try the C&R again.
