Default Opening forms from other forms

When in Access, is it possible after opening a form, for a control on that form (click) to open a second form?

Yes, I have done it in most of my forms.
How it works is, you need to have a index field value to
reference the second form record to open.
Code example:

Private Sub Open_Form_Name_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Open_Form_Name_Click

  Dim strfrm As String
  Dim strWhere As String

  strfrm = "Form - " & [Form_Name]
  strWhere = "ID = " & Me!ID
  DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:=strfrm, WhereCondition:=strWhere

  Exit Sub

  Resume Exit_Open_Form_Name_Click

End Sub

Hope this helps.
