I upgraded from MS Access 2003 to MS Access 2007 and I have a problem every time I change the view of my forms.

I have this one form and if I change it to design view an error message will pop-up. Here is the error message:

The command or action 'Quit' isn't available now.

You may be in a read-only database or an unconverted database from an earlier version of "mydatabase".

The type of object the action applies to isn't currently selected or isn't in the active view.

Use only those commands and macro actions that are currently available for this database

Any idea what's the problem here and how will I go about this?


Additional information:

This happens only in one form. The name of the form is: Form_Main. Once I opened this database, the Form_Main opened into Form View. Now if I would like to change something in the Property Sheet, I right clicked on the Form View and select to Design View. And if I do this, this is when I got this error:

The command or action 'Quit' isn't available now.

You may be in a read-only database or an unconverted database from an earlier version of "mydatabase".

The type of object the action applies to isn't currently selected or isn't in the active view.

Use only those commands and macro actions that are currently available for this database

Please clarify the context in which this happens. Are you changeing to design view through the UI, or in a macro or VBA code? –  David W. Fenton Nov 17 '09 at 2:53
    
If someone else made or worked on this database it may contain old VBA code. Do you know how to edit code in Access VBA? –  subman Nov 23 '09 at 0:24
    
@subman: I have a very basic idea but not really good. What do you want me to do? –  tintincutes Nov 24 '09 at 16:11
