    Unanswered: Help--Keep/open multiple forms active

    Hello everyone,

    I have a ms access application in which the very first form acts like a switch board and it has buttons to open forms.
    All the forms, which open from switch board, use different tables.
    The problem is, if i open any form from switch board, it doesnt let me go back to switch board back and open another form until i close the current form.
    It keeps only one form active at a time. I want to be able to open multiple forms at the same time.
    does anyone know how we can keep multiple ms access forms active at the same time?

    I would really appreciate if someone can help me....

    Thanks in advance

    The form you use as a switchboard probably open the forms in modal view:
    Code:
    DoCmd.OpenForm "<FormName>", , , , , acDialog
    Or the forms you open have their Modal property set to True.
    Have a nice day!
