Easy peasy

do this

doCmd.close acForm "name of form"
DoCmd.openForm "NameofForm", acDatasheet (or whatever the view is that you want)

Do you think you could go into a bit more depth? of what what the name of the forms are (the name of the subform, the name of its parent form ) Might be ab it easier to help you with your problem..

yup no problem!

The main form is called

MenuMain_F

the subform control is called MenuSubForm

and the subform form is called

MenuMainClassList_F

You could try having to forms(for use as subforms) created. One in continuous form view and the other in single form view. Then just change the source object property of the subform control on your main form when the user clicks on a button.

Not what you wanted but it might suit your needs.

the thing with doing it that way (the way it currently does) is that if i change one form then i have either recreate the other one or make the changes to both forms and its wasting a lot of time, as well as there being 10 or so forms that change view
