Just a few notes to the solution from lludden....

The object being minimized is the current selected form.  If the current selected form is not the form you want minimized, you must first make the form to be minimized the current selected form.

Minimizing a form puts an icon for the form on the task bar.  You may essentially do the same thing using the visible property of the form or using the hide method for the form.  These versions do not put an icon on the task bar.

from a command button's click event on the form you want to minimize

Private Sub cmdMin_Click()
   DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDocMinimize
End Sub

from a command button's click event to minimize the entire application
Private Sub cmdMin_Click()
   DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAppMinimize
End Sub

I just assumed you only needed the code.

Sorry to have seemed hasty:)
