How can one leave ShowModal and return to same.

How can one leave ShowModal and return to same.

How can one leave ShowModal and return to same.

I have Application1 which involves the following

frmAccs := TFrmAccs.Create(nil);

Within Application1 I trigger Application2 [as follows] to obtain a result for Application1 to further rely upon.

WinExec('c:\Program Files\Application2.exe', SW_SHOW);

...which achieves the required result ....BUT frmAccs.ShowModal loses its focus to produce unwanted result.

To overcome the problem I tried the following ...

WinExec('c:\Program Files\Application2.exe', SW_SHOW);

...whereby frmAccs.ShowModal [apparently] maintains its proper focus BUT Application1 hangs.

Any suggestions anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Problem had nothing to do with modal.

Simple matter of losing relationships between the records.
