I have a field where upon the Lostfocus event, an inquiry is made to a table. The problem comes when the user hits a function key that loads a different form.  The screen seems to flicker endlessly between the two forms.  The first form trying to execute the inquiry and the second form trying to load.  Help!

Here's the lostfocus code:
Private Sub txtBILL_LostFocus()
    txtBILL.BackColor = lnBACKCOLOR_OFF
    Check_bill_number
    If blFOUND_RECORD = True Then
        If cboTRANSACTION.Text = "Adjustment" Then
            txtCITY_ASS.SetFocus
        ElseIf cboTRANSACTION.Text = "Misc Payment" Or cboTRANSACTION.Text = "Void Misc" Then
            txtFEES.SetFocus
        Else
            txtTAX.SetFocus
        End If
    End If
    check_transaction
End Sub



Here's the code that loads the "Form2":
Private Sub cmdINQ_ALL_BILLS_Click()
    'Inquiry on any bill
    inquiry_came_from = INQUIRY_FROM_INQUIRY
   
    Call Enable_Toolbar(False)
    Call Enable_Menu(False)
    Load inquiry
    inquiry.Show

End Sub


The lostfocus calls two other routines as well as setting the focus on other other fields.

Nothing is here asyncronyous so it cant be that bouth sub are executing at the same time. I sepouse that LostFocus is first because cmd has reseved focus before click so search for error in form load event.
And if you do .Show you dont nead Load before.

In your code, try testing that the form is still active:  

For example, instead of:

  txtCITY_ASS.SetFocus

Try:
  If ActiveForm is me then
    txtCITY_ASS.SetFocus
  Endif

Actually, now I think of it, you could just change the line:

  If blFOUND_RECORD = True Then

To:

  If blFOUND_RECORD = True And ActiveForm is Me Then

If using ActiveForm gives you any trouble, try Screen.ActiveForm
