Hi, back at Access after a 5 year hiatus, still don't know much.
I have a startup form that the user uses to select one of many input forms. I have the startup set to visible=false when you go to an input form since the startup is a popup. When the input form is closed it sets the visible=true for the startup to go back to the startup.
The trouble arises when the user opens 2 or more input forms at the same time, when one is closed it "visibles" the startup over the others. Is there a way to keep the startup hidden until ALL other forms are closed?
Hope this makes sense.

What I do is hide all forms as new ones open and send the "calling" form's name via the open arguments:
Me.Visible = False
Then for the close command on the "called" form:
DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name

I think I have forgotten far more than I remember when it comes to Access. That's what I get for a major career shift. I'll give that a try and let you know.
