    Question Unanswered: Table Wizard not showing Sample Tables & Sample Fields

    I have a user using MS Access 2002 that whenever they try to "Create table by using wizard" the areas under Sample Tables and Sample Fields are all blank.

    I checked my computer also using Access 2002 and the Table Wizard has tables and fields to choose from as expected.

    I have tried searching Microsoft's site and also Google searched but have not found anything to help solve the problem or at least point me in the right direction.
    I already tried copying the following files from my good computer to the user's bad computer:
    This still did not fix the problem of the missing Sample Tables and Fields.
    Anyone know how to fix this? From what source does Access retrieve the list of these items, from a file, from the registry, ???

    I once had the same problem with access xp. my advice is to do this:

    1. go to control panel
    2. click add/remove programs
    3. Click on Office and select CHANGE
    4. click on reinstall / repair

    This will repair office for you.

    if that dont work try this:

    Get a reg clean / repair program and try that

    if that doesnt work then this is your only option:

    if that doesnt work uninstall office and reinstall it

    And if you reinstall it and u still have the problem then I would just format the drive!!!

    Hi Mike,
    Have you tried reinstalling Access/Office again and selecting those features to Install on first use or whatever it actually says...but I think that's it. I did that and got all my sample Databases and Wizards.

    have a nice one,
