we have an access 2010 application, with backend / frontend setup. When one of the analysts opens the master copy of the front end in design view, creates a query, saves it - when another user opens that same FE in design view, the query has vanished (same as if the analyst who write the query saves it closes the FE, re-opens it - the query has just vanished)..
Our FE is basically just a collection of 20 or so forms, 10 reports and about 20 linked tables/queries (to the master backend), but my understanding was it should retain and custom written queries? not sure if at all relevant but is uses auto FE updater to distribute the master copy of the front end to the users home drives. Same issue happens not just with queries but forms etc. it seems to save fine as it shows in the list on the left of queries/forms, but when closed and re-opened by the same user or another, its gone!
