I have created the tables, relationship and query. I am now trying to create a form in the design mode. The problem is the field list box is greyed out. What could be the problem. BTW, I can create the form if I use the wizard, but it seems I must have done something wrong if I can't drag the fields from the list on the tool bar.
Thank you in advance for your help.

Before you can choose fields to add to your form, you need to set a "Control Source" for the form. Bring up the form properties, and set the "Control Source" to the table/query where you want to choose the fields.

Hope this helps...
