> Prompts When Inserted Control On Form, Any Version

When I add a control, like a command button or option group, Access normally prompts to complete the action
So when you add a command button, Access asks what the button must, if it's to open a form it asks for the form name etc

My database has stopped doing this sad.gif
The command button is added to the form, but that's it. I need to manually add the code to it
How do I get the prompts to work again?

I have tried by compacting and repairing the database. Also run debug to see if there is a code error
Neither of this has helped

Thanks in advance

Sounds like you have unselected the Control Design Wizard button. Open a form in design mode, in the control box, open it up and you should see the option.

You accidentally deactivated the wizard. To reactivate it:

Open any form in Design View
On the Design Tab, In the Controls Group, Press on the More button
Click on the Use Control Wizards
