    Hi,

    Is possible to leave a form unlock and make it it available in design view
    before or after a database is made as an MDE file?

    Thank you
    GL

    No.

    To make design changes to a Form you must have it in a .mdb file.

    Yes, but there are limitations in the types of design changes one can make
    to a form in an MDE database file. For example, one cannot add or delete
    controls, nor change one type of control into another type, such as a text
    box into a combo box. One can, however, move controls around, change colors,
    resize things, and alter many of the properties in the Properties dialog
    window.

    What changes did you have in mind? Access developers don't generally make
    changes to the MDE file, because the MDE file is intended as the application
    interface that users can work with without altering the design, either
    inadvertently or intentionally. If you've lost the MDB file, then that's a
    different story. You have no choice but to make the changes to the MDE file.

    HTH.
