When I call a modal form via popupmenu it doesn't let me call any popupmenus on the new form because the other popup is still active (I think) is there any way around this?

Your problem is that you can't call a popupmenu before closing the previous one (see help on PopupMenu).

A solution to this could be creating a global variable that tells the program what the user selected in the mnuItem_Click sub. You can create the forms in the nmu_Click event but set them as non modal. Then you call a user defined function (which is in a module) that shows the PopupMenu of the form. If you need the form to be modal you can set it up in your function. This trick works cause you wait until the Click sub finishes and don´t have 2 PopupMenu active.

Another aproach, in case you MUST have 2 PopupMenus would be to set a form as a PopupMenu, it's not hard but a pain in the ass.
