This is one of the RARE times I recommend 'On Error Resume Next', as M$ doesn't have a way to handle this...

Private Sub Command11_Click()
On Error Resume Next
DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Request_Edit", acNormal
End Sub

Also, make sure you have error handling in frm_Request_Edit, in case anything blows up here.

btw I recommend renaming Command11 to something more meaningful to you, like cmdEdit, cmdPrint, cmdRequest, or cmdWhatever.  
Command11 isn't exactly very descriptive.

Or u can check for the error code as there may be a real problem of the form not opening

Private Sub Command11_Click()
    On Error Resume Next


    DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Request_Edit", acNormal
    If err.number <> 0 and err.number <> XXX then  msgbox err.Description
end sub


just cant remember the error number
if u did this


Private Sub Command11_Click()
    On Error Resume Next


    DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Request_Edit", acNormal
msgbox err.number
    If err.number <> 0 and err.number <> XXX then  msgbox err.Description
end sub


it will then give u the error number when u hit cancel
then replace XXX with that error number


End Sub

Hi Jim, I think your right, I just tried a small test (DoCmd.SendObject then cancelled that) and I got 2501
