Opening Screens

I am new to Foxpro.  I work in Access normally.  It has confounded me that there is no way to easily open a screen with a "button" on another screen.  Can anyone help!!!

RE: Opening Screens

I'm not sure what difficulty you are having.

In Fox 2.6, the Valid of the button would simply execute:
do screen2.spr

In VFP, the click of the button would execute:
do form screen2

If this doesn't address your issue, could you provide us more details?

RE: Opening Screens

Thanks for the help.  I figured that out this morning.  I find Foxpro overloaded with programming.  I've done some C programming, but when you attach it to forms and dbf tables it becomes quite convoluted.  I am accustom to creating something then adding code to it as necessary.  Foxpro adds so much behind the scenes I can hardly think where to begin.  Again, thanks for the help.
