Thanks. It has been many years since I used the old switchboards so I'm not sure, I think what that did was delete the form itself from the accdb. If so, the solution is, as previously suggested, to go to the most recent backup and import it from there.
Open the Navigation Pane, as I showed, and look for a form there called "Switchboard".

You can follow these steps to import the most recent copy of the switchboard from your most recent backup of the accdb.
Locate the most recent backup copy of the accdb (where you stored it varies, but you should know because you created it). Note the location so you can navigate to it.
Open the working accdb and select "External Data" on the ribbon. Then select "New Data Source". It suggests you'll import data, but it also imports forms and other objects. Select "From Database", then "Access".
This will open a file dialog. Navigate to your backup accdb and select it.
Now you can select the "Switchboard" form (I don't have one to show unfortunately.)
If you made changes to the Switchboard since you last created a backup, you'll have to reimplement those newer changes, but that's better than starting all over again, which is always an option.
