    Unanswered: How to Access Hidden Tables and Queries??

    Hi guys,

    I've been tasked with adding some fields to an application data entry form screen in an Access database. The file is password locked, and when I enter in the password, I get the form screen.

    I just can't find any way to access the components of these database like the queries and tables. It's like the designer locked this thing down tight and hid all the menus. I don't even see the navigation pane. The only tabs I have are Home and Add in. If I right click and go to design view, it only gives me the design screen for the form template. I need to access the stuff running behind the scenes.

    I've attached a picture of the Access screen.

    Can anyone help?

    Have you tried holding down the shift key when opening the database?
