PRB: Show All Records Menu Choice Not Available

Article ID: Q100144
Creation Date: 16-JUN-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 7.0

SYMPTOMS


Novice: Requires knowledge of the user interface on single-user computers.

When you have a form open, the Show All Records command on the Records menu is not available.

CAUSE


There are three possible causes for this behavior:

  • The form's AllowFilters property is set to No.
  • The form is not bound to a table or query.
  • The form is a subform whose main form meets one of the above criteria.

RESOLUTION

Set the form's AllowFilters property to Yes, or bind the main form to a table or query by adding that table or query to the form's RecordSource property.

STATUS


This behavior is by design.

MORE INFORMATION


When the AllowFilters property is set to No, the following commands on the Records menu will not be available: Edit Filter/Sort, Apply Filter/Sort, and Show All Records.

REFERENCES


For more information about the AllowFilters property, search for "AllowFilters," and then "AllowFilters Property" using the Microsoft Access Help menu.
