can't view detail section of form

I've created a form in design view from fields from a few different linked
tables. When I view or print the form in regular view, the detail section is
blank. It shows fine when I'm in design view. Any ideas? Thanks.

Your query has no existing records and doesn't allow edits. A totally blank
detail section is what you get from that. Multi-table queries are often not
editable and thus are often not good candidates for use with a form.

This happens to a form when certain conditions exist:

1) The recordsource query returns no records or is read only.
2) The AllowAdditions property of the form is False
3) The DataEntry property of the form is false.

Here are some articles that describe other reasons why this could occur:
