I need to open a form as follows:
    stDocName = "PostCodeSearch"
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria, , acDialog
Make some change as follows:
    Forms.PostCodeSearch.PCArea = strSelectedText
    Forms.PostCodeSearch.Town = ""

Then change its WindowsMode to acDialog so that the code in the calling module waits for the form 'PostCodeSearch' to close as if I had originally opened it acDialog.

Code being used
Private Sub PCCearch_Click()
Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "PostCodeSearch"
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria, , acHidden
If Nz(strSelectedText, "") <> "" Then  
    Forms.PostCodeSearch.PCArea = strSelectedText
    Forms.PostCodeSearch.Town = ""
End If
Forms.PostCodeSearch.Visible = True
'Wait here for the 'PostCodeSearch' form to close and return control here
End Sub
