Navigation Pane Description missing – Access 2007 SP2

“Use MS ACCESS 2007 to manage large volume of accounting data, and have many
tables and queries.  I enter a description in these tables and queries to
help me remember what they all do.  MS OFFICE Service Pack 2 was released
into my machine last night, and now the descriptions have disappeared in the
navigation pane I use to run queries.”

  1. There is now a hotfix to restore this (and fix a few other things):

    Issues that this hotfix package fixes
    · In Microsoft Office Access 2007, you have a report that includes a form reference in the criteria of the record source. When you enter a letter at the first parameter prompt, a numeric value is displayed on the report. For example, if you enter the letter “a” at the first parameter prompt, the value “97″ is displayed on the report.
    · In Access 2007, you have a form or a report that is bound to a SQL Server stored procedure. The stored procedure is executed multiple times when you perform one of the following actions:
    o You open a form in Form View.
    o You open a form in Datasheet View.
    o You open a report in Report View.
    o You print or print preview a report.
    This problem does not occur in Access 2003.

    Note You also experience the problem when you open a form or a report in Design View or in Layout View. However, this is not fixed in the hotfix.
    · After you apply 2007 Office system Service Pack 2, the Navigation Pane in Access 2007 continues to scroll after you release the mouse. This problem occurs when the Navigation Pane is viewed by Details or by Icon, but not by List.
    · After you apply 2007 Office system Service Pack 2, the description of an object does not appear in the Navigation Pane in Access 2007. This problem occurs even if the Navigation Pane is viewed by Details.
    · After you apply 2007 Office system Service Pack 2, when you open an object in Access 2007 the text on the status bar flickers.
    · In Access 2007, you open a view that contains a field which uses a sum function in Report View or in Layout View. If you move the scroll bar while the sum function is calculating, the value of the field changes.
