open pop-up form in middle (centered) of main form

Last Modified: 2013-11-28
I have a main form (frmMain) with the dimensions of
Height = 9990
Width = 13980

However, this form can be moved anywhere widhtin the Access container.

When I click a CommandButton, I would like my child-form to pop-up in the middle of the Master form, regardless of where it is in the container.

The center property only seems to work within the center of the Access window, not the master form.
