Change a form property in all forms

I've tried every syntax I can think of to allow me to change the "AllowDesignChanges" property of all my forms to False (which I'm pretty sure allows design changes only at design time... How does MS come UP with some of these defaults!) but I haven't found it yet. I can get at the properties of open forms, but I can't figure out how to get at the properties of AllForms. Help?

Thanks,

Kevin

Through code, open each form in Design View (DoCmd.OpenForm "Formname", acDesign)
Set its property to false
Close the form

Good luck

Thanks Danny. I was hoping for the code which would let me say

for each Frm in ???????
Frm.Properties("AllowDesignChanges")="Design"
next Frm

or whatever the proper syntax is.
