    Unanswered: Form not opening on some users PC's?!

    I have a from which is opened via a button click. This button is only visible to users with certain privileges. It works fine on my machine and most Windows XP machines I have tested. There are at least 2 machines where a click of the button results in nothing, no open form.

    I have a feeling the form is opening but just not displaying. I changed the property to Modal and then clicked the button. I was stuck. Access thought the form was open and would not let me continue until the form was closed but it was not open!

    Any ideas?

    Is there only this form that is not opening or is it all the forms that open in this way?

    It's just this one form. So far I've only found two PC's where it won't open... Or should I say won't display since I think it is opening but not displaying.

    Anybody have any ideas as to why this is happening?

    stick something temporary and meaningless in the form's _Load()

    msgbox "Troublesome form is loading now"

    will do. then slap a breakpoint on that msgbox line and step thru with f8 to see where it is falling over (or if it is indeed loading at all!)

    I did step thru the code that opens the report and all the code is executed to open the form...

    we have too many things called "form".

    formA - the one with the button
    formB - the one that doesn't show for some users.

    put the break in formB's _Load() event and see if it tries to load.
