    When I try to open a form, I get the following error message:
    you loaded a form or report that has controls or properties that microsoft
    access doesn't recognize and will ignore

    The form will not open.

    What can I try to get the form to open properly?
     
  2. Loading...

    You "could" open the form by pressing the shift key as you select the form
    BUT it's not a good idea.

    One way is (not the best option) to open the form in design view and delete
    a contol then try and open it in form view - if it won't then that control
    was not the one causeing the problem. Keep doing this until you find the
    problem.

    The best option would be either to use a backup if you have one or rewrite
    the form
    (I know thats not what you wanted to her - sorry)

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Wayne. I ended up finding a back up.
