When I show a new form on the screen, it will not show up in the task bar.  The button in the task bar for the original form also disappears.  The property show in task bar is set to true for both forms.  Is there a way to  make the second form show or at least keep the first form in the task bar?

What type of project? (Standard EXE)
Post the code you use to show the second form.

It is a standard exe.  An example of the code:

Private Sub cmdGotoPO_Click()
    frmMain.Hide
    frmPO.Show 1
End Sub

Where frmMain is the main form.  The task bar button will disappear when frmPO is called.

1) When you hide a form, it will not show in the taskbar.

2) A form shown modally will not show in the taskbar.

Try:

frmMain.Hide
frmPO.Show 0, Me
