LibreOffice Version: (x64) DB Engine: Firebird OS Win10 I am happy with my form containing multiple subforms. But the form in data display/entry mode has a Navigation Toolbar which is deactivated. Adding a Navigation control, that is deactivated too. So I can't save any new data I enter. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? image description

Ratslinger, sorry but I've wasted your time again! Somehow, the new field 'Action Plan' I'd inserted got linked to the ContactDetails table instead of the Client table on which the main form is based. So it wasn't accepting any data in a control linked to an 'ActionPlan' column which doesn't exist in the ContactDetails table. Re-linking to the Client table activated the NavBar.

Thanks anyway!

What is most likely the problem is not the Navigation bar but rather the table definition. Check the table definition to insure a field is set as the primary key. This is essential to database tables.

If this is not the problem, a sample of the Base file will help - scrubbed.
