    Unanswered: Access 2013 Unhide Tables

    I am trying to un-hide tables In an Access 2000 DB converted to Access 2013.

    I have right clicked on the object navigation pane and ticked the 'show hidden objects box'

    I now see all of the hidden tabled in a light colour. However, when I right click on a shaded out (hidden) table the table properties shows the 'hidden' box ticked with a shaded out tick which i cannot untick.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated

    the only reason why I think this would occur is a permissions issue
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    I agree with healdem; even if you were dealing with an mde/accde file, you should be able to carry out this action.

    Resolved Access 2013 unhide tables

    I could not find any reason why db objects could not be unhidden but when I imported the tables to a new i db was able to untick the hidden check box.

    imported into a new, means you have created new objects with your permissions not the previous permissions

    its one of the glaring security holes in MDB's that its all to easy to do this.....

    Or there was corruption present; importing into a new file often cures that.
