I have a popup form where users have the option of clicking a cmd that brings up a related report. unfortunately, the report shows up under the popup and it is necessary to close the popup to see the report.

What I would like to happen is:
1) users click cmd, report appears on top of the popup
2) users views report, closes
3) popup is visible again

I don't think that I can have the popup close and reopen as the popup is based on some criteria on another frm that would probably be complicated to recreate if it had to be opened again.

Ideas?

me.visible=false


in the close event of the report make the popup form visible

private sub report_close()

end sub
