I have form1 opening form2. On form 2, I enter some data. When I'm done on form2, I want form2 to stay open but set the focus back to form1. When I'm done using form2, I will then close form2. On form2, I have a button that simply tries to set the focus back to form1 using forms!form1!setfocus and I have tried setting focus to a control on form1 using forms!form1!mybutton!setfocus but neither is working so I know I am doing something wrong. Can anybody help me with the syntax?
Thanks in advance

What is the code you're using to open form2 from form1? By any chance are you using the acDialog argument?

I am using .... DoCmd.OpenForm "form4", acNormal

I see. So, if this is your actual syntax:
then try replacing the bang with a dot:
Hope that helps...

As usual, you come through again! I just needed to shake the leaves out of the trees a little.
