Newbe Question: Reguarding Forms

Newbe Question: Reguarding Forms

What is the command to call a form from an existing one?

I thought it was "ShowWindow" or "ShowForm" but these dont work.



RE: Newbe Question: Reguarding Forms

Try this code, but replace "NewForm" with the name of the form you want to show. This is usually used when a command button on the first form is clicked. (You can also call the routine anything you want, but I usally use a meaningful name)

Private Sub CmdShowNewForm_Click()

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "NewForm"
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

    Exit Sub

End Sub
