Not from online, but from Help

"When you first open a form, the following events occur in this order:

Open > Load > Resize > Activate > Current

If you're trying to decide whether to use the Open or Load event for your macro or event procedure, one significant difference is that the Open event can be canceled, but the Load event can't. For example, if you're dynamically building a record source for a form in an event procedure for the form's Open event, you can cancel opening the form if there are no records to display."

OK found what I was looking for.

1. In Access, hit F1.
2. Type in "open event"
3. Click Search
4. There should be an entry called "Open Event".  Select it
5. About half way down the page it gives the event order
