    Since transferring my Access 2000/2002 databases to my new Computer running Windows Vista, Access Forms with Graphs/Charts no longer display the Graphs/Charts.
    These charts were created using the Access Form "Graph Wizard" which uses Microsoft Graph 12.
    Any new Graphs also do not display on the Forms, but when viewed in design mode they are there and show fully.
    Has anyone else had any experience of this?

    Does MS Graph pop-up when you double click on the graphs in design mode?

    Jim, yes it pops up and the Graphs are fully customizable and appear as they should when in Design Mode, "Graph Edit" or "Graph Open" modes. :confused:
    But when you just open the form they are not there at all. just a Blank Space where they should be.
    Interestingly if you leave the Design Mode on "All Views" and change any Properties the Graph appears.
    But is not there if you close and open it again. :confused::confused:

    I too had an Access application properly rendering the Graphs in Windows XP, but not in Vista. Here's the fix:

    1. Remove the Rowsource for the graph.
    2. In the Form open event, set the rowsource for the graph.

    So you code on the form open event should look something like this:

    YourFormName.GraphControl.RowSource="NameOfOriginalNameSource"
