Hi

I would like to have a form that could generate 20 buttons from the access database and
before the main form and could start the application

eg.
Form 1
(buttons)
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
now lets say you press 7 that would lead to the Main form and you could use the application there
(whatever the application does) and you would also have a button back to Form 1
which would go back and now you could  press 12 and that would start up the same application again
now
if you went back from 12 to Form 1
now you would have 2 buttons diffrent color indicating that the 2 buttons are active
now
if you went to 7 again and you pressed "End" button which couses the transaction to end,  and  then went back to Form 1 the button would not be active any more but the 12 would still be

thank you

Is this in relation to the POS program?

Yes, but we should probably handle everything through EE, cause others are feeling left out.

OK, you want the form to create 20 buttons from an access database during its creation and show the buttons when the form shows?

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa, you have lost me with the rest of your question?

ok

It  generates 20 buttons on the Form1 from the access database and now when yoou press one of the buttons
it goes to another form ( which is the pos form ) then you may put in couple of items in that pos form and you have a button on the side so you could go back to Form1
if you go to the Form1 without ending the transaction it will be active untill you finsish with that
but meanwhile before ending that transaction you can bascically start an new one wit another button which perhaps maybe 12

and then go back and finish the first transaction you started

so you see?

WHat is the purpose of the 20 buttons? What will each do?. How are they represented in the database?

I can create a button on a form that calls up the POS program, with no problem. But im not understanding your logic behind this - WHY?

lets maybe put it like this

you may understand that as being tables and when you press that # (table ) the pos appears


and if you have another table you go back because you cannot finish the transaction so you
go back and select anoither table


do you see my point now?

The solution is posted. He wanted a new form with 20 buttons on it, and when one button was clicked, to show his Point of Sale form Modal.
