Default How to Inactivate Access While a form is open.

Okay here is my situation. I have a command Button on a form that opens another form. After the form opens up I want everything else to freeze. For example, if you have a document open in MS Word and you go to the file menu and click "print" the print dialog box pops up Word freezes so you can't do anything unless it is on the print dialog. Anyone know how to do this?? Any help is appreciated. Thanks,


-Josh

Hi HJosh-
Is what you want to do is make the form "modal". Find the Modal property on the the "Other" tab on the property sheet for the form. Set the Modal Property equal to "true".

HTH,
Loralee
