    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?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
