    I am a database fundamentals instructor and I've not seen this situation
    happen before. One of my students created a form: header clip art and
    title, detail section with regular field controls, combo boxes and yes/no
    boxes, no footer as of this point. But when she goes back to form view, the
    New Record button in the navigation bar is dimmed. Additionally, all the
    commands on the Insert menu are dimmed.

    Other than a possible keystroke combination, what would have caused this to
    happen, and is it reversible?

    Did the RecordSource property get deleted, so the form is now unbound?
    Or is the RecordSource a query that cannot be updated?

    How about the form's AllowAdditions property?
