Menu disabled after printing

Using the "report form" option in Visual FoxPro 6.0
I use custom menu option of fox pro to replace the default one. One part of the menu is selecting which reports to print. The menu then calls a program that then deal with printing the report. When the report is done the system menu is disabled until you restart the program.  

How can I get the menu to become active again.?



RE: Menu disabled after printing

Look for a set menu off command

try at the start of the program
Push Menu xxxxx
do (your program that does the printing)
Pop Menu xxxxx
Set menu on

In the line of code where you call the Report
Add the command NOWAIT
This way the menu won’t freeze
