    Unanswered: The State of Collapses in the Access 2007 Navigation Pane

    Hey do any of you have an answer for another one of those simple things that has taken me an hour or two to try and find?

    I have two MS Access 2007 databases. Both converted from 2000. One of them remembers when I have everything but Forms and Modules collapsed. If I close and re-open this database, it returns with only Forms and Modules expanded in the Navigation Pane.

    The other database doesn't do this. If I collapse tables and close and re-open the database (or compact it) the tables section (and all the others) is expanded again and it's annoying the c**p out of me.

    Anyone know what I need to do to make a database remember the state of collapses in the Navigation Pane of an Access 2007 database?

    Cheers

    Ok. This issue is resolved.

    There is no option for such a thing. I assumed the database that wasn't remembering the collapses was simply corrupted somehow (since no-body knows anything about how to fix it) so I created a new database and imported all the objects from the corrupted database into it.

    The new database remembers collapses fine now.

    HTH someone else

    Maybe I'm just stuck in the past, but I find that navigation pane to be a pain.

    I'd like the database window back.

    Agreed!

    There's many things in 2007 that I would like changed / put back. Userlevel security and a simple way of customising the toolbars / menus being the foremost. And some way of getting rid of that god-ugly office button
