Form closing when another form opens

Form closing when another form opens

Form closing when another form opens

(OP)
Hi Everyone: I am stumped by this issue. I have a form with a button to click . When that button is clicked, another information pop up form opens. But the original form closes and I don't understand why it is closing. I have the same type of form in other areas of the database that does not do that and I can't see the difference.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks, Sophia

I think it was because the data was not saved on the main form. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.

Thanks, Sophia

RE: Form closing when another form opens

Opening one form should not result in closing another form. The exception would be if there is code or a macro the performs the closing.

Thanks for the reassurance that that was not possible.
I finally found a "me.visible=false" value on opening the new form.

Good catch. Sometimes these are hard to find.
