Prevent opening form from Navigation Pane

Prevent opening form from Navigation Pane

Prevent opening form from Navigation Pane


I want to prevent users from opening a particular form directly from the Navigation Pane.

The database displays frmAdmissionData on launching, and this has a link that opens a second form frmHogData. It's this second one that I don't want them to be able to open directly from the Navigation Pane, instead putting up a message to say it's only accessible using the link on frmAdmissionData.

RE: Prevent opening form from Navigation Pane

Would it work to set the form as hidden?

Thanks Duane, good idea.

Realise now it also needs Navigation Options to have Show Hidden Objects unticked.
