I want all my form to open as MAXIMIZE but if i use closeForm the next form
is opening as "not-maximize"

This does not happen when I use Access97, only when I use the Run-time mdb

I belive that it is because the Acitveform (used in line 1)are open in a certian mode, the will "start" inherit this mode.

A suggestion for you is to in the form_open of all your form add a docmd.maximize

This should do the trick

One more thing.
Deff differences between runtime and "not-runtime" is propably because the databsewindow comes the active window in ""not-runtime", and this window is restored when you open access, but in runtime the dbwindow is not visible and therefore the start does not inherit this sizemode.
