I created a form in Access 2013 with fields from a few different tables, macros to open form and go to new record. All was working quite well but now when I click to open the form all I see is my header and a blank form in the details (data entry)  area. When in design view, I see all my fields and the layout of the form. So when I open the form, it is blank.
Any thoughts/ideas?

The form probably doesn't allow additions and the recordsource is not returning any records.

It worked after I removed some Macros from the form. I also changed all the record sources to their correct fields.
Thanks again Pat
