    Display order of Forms (2007)

    I have a form that opens when a combo box on a different form loses the focus. The form opens, but is displayed behind the form with the combo box. How to I make the new form show on top. I do not want to minimize the form with the combo box.
    Thanks,

    Try adding a line

    Forms![NameOfTheForm].SetFocus

    substituting the name of the form that has been opened.

    Oh, I forgot - if the form with the combo box has its Popup property set to Yes, it will remain in front of other forms that do not have Popup set to Yes.

    Setting the popup to yes on the second form fixed it. Thanks,
