Could someone please tell me why is the frmStation pop out during the execution whereas I didn't put frmStation.Show?

Private Sub Search()

criteria = "GaugeNo = '" & stno & "'"
frmStation.datLocation.Recordset.FindFirst criteria

If frmStation.datLocation.Recordset.NoMatch = True Then
    Msg = MsgBox("Could not find station based on gauge no: " & StationNo, vbExclamation, "Error")
    ILOCATION = UCase(InputBox("Please enter station name", "Station Name", , 3000, 2400))
    ILOCATION = UCase(frmStation.datLocation.Recordset("StationName"))
End If

End Sub

Perhaps because you're using data-bound controls and they're doing something to show their parent form?

if u start using controls on the forms the controls needs to be loaded which in turn loads the form and shows the form

Who's "u"?

Yes... the controls need to be loaded, but that doesn't necessarily show the form.

Try this:

Private Sub Main()

Form1.Text1.Text = "hello world"

End Sub

Form is loaded, but not shown.

Are you using MDIForm and child windows ???
If so, you might have forgotten to switch of the AutoShowChildren property of the MDIForm ?
