    Unanswered: Can't open form

    Hi -

    I am trying to edit forms on a Access 2000 MDB I built. Is there any reason why the Design option is grayed out when I try and edit a form? I did have a problem with our PC, and I had to recover files. The MDB file is acting like an MDE file. Is there a way to tell if a file is an mde file besides the extension? I wonder if in the file recovery it was renamed.

    Another couple of things to try:

    1. Is the database file Read Only?
    2. Do you have permissions in Windows to edit the database?
