    Red face Unanswered: How to keep reports maximized

    Hi

    Can anyone tell me if its possible to keep a report maximized until its closed, so the user cant do anything else until its closed.

    The best I could think of was this code in the form the user sees when they restore my maximized report.

    Private Sub Form_Activate()
    If IsReportLoaded("myreport") Then
    DoCmd.SelectObject acReport, "myreport"
    DoCmd.Maximize
    End If
    End Sub

    I would rather they couldn't restore the report.

    well well well

    Teddy recently wized me up on the snapview.ocx control during a reply to some other question, but at the time i couldn't think of a use for the .ocx

    now your completely different question just a couple of days later points to a possible use for the .ocx!

    if you report to .snp and you open the .snp in a snapview.ocx control on a popup/modal form opened as ,,,,acdialog
    ...the user is trapped on your form until it closes!

    docmd.OpenReport "myReport",,,,acDialog

    Talking Anymore good ideas?

    If I try to use any combination of popup and or modal the user can't click on my custom toolbar.

    I had a look at using the snapview ocx and it looks very promising. I would never have thought of that.

    Because I couldn't find anything on the web about it I thought I may have overlooked something really easy.

    Thankyou all
