"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

on the form properties pages

Allow edits = yes
Allow deletions = yes
Allow additions = yes

or if you are coding
    Form.AllowAdditions = True
    Form.AllowDeletions = True
    Form.AllowEdits = True

Sorry I am such a dimwit. I mean programmatically. I have 105 forms.

A = Form in database
for each A
 Form.AllowAdditions = True
 Form.AllowDeletions = True
 Form.AllowEdits = True
Next A

you may try this

for each frm in Application.CurrentProject.AllForms
    frm.AllowAdditions = True
    frm.AllowDeletions = True
    frm.AllowEdits = True

Here is how:
Public Sub SetForms()

    Dim obj As Object
    Dim frm As Form

    For Each obj In Application.CurrentProject.AllForms
        DoCmd.OpenForm obj.Name, acDesign, , , , acHidden
        Set frm = Forms(obj.Name)
        frm.AllowAdditions = True
        frm.AllowDeletions = True
        frm.AllowEdits = True
        DoCmd.Close acForm, obj.Name, acSaveYes
    Set frm = Nothing
    Set obj = Nothing
End Sub
