Cmd Close Question

In what way can I utilize the attached code in the btnClose command to reset the three major forms namely: frmS, frmW and frmT:

FrmS, FrmW and FrmT are designed as follows:
         Allow Edit = No
      Allow Deletion = No
     Allow Addition = Yes
     Data Entry = Yes.

Funny enough the code works fine just for one main form "frmS" when tested but when the code was nested with the remaining two forms, it gave errors.

Brief Description:
"frmSearch" is a popup form that loads atop each of the main forms  frmS, frmW and frmT.

"frmSearch" is used to find record to be displayed or loaded unto each of the main forms.
However, when user attempts to close "frmSearch" whem loaded on top of each of the main forms, user usually gets a compile error: "Type Mismatch.

on....
Set frm = Forms(Me.OpenArgs)

Additionally, user gets another error that says the main form Is Not Loaded (even though the main form are each loaded when in use) .

Debug usually highlight the loaded main form in question...
e.g..
If Not Form!frmS.Dirty Then


Is there any way to correct the error such that the fucntion would function as designed.
I hereby attach the "FULL" code for all the three main forms per my most recent test

In addition the openarg rference below is utilized in "frmSearch" itself at the "cmdFind" code without any error. The error is limited only to the btnClose.

Set frm = Forms(Me.OpenArgs)
Set frm = Forms(Me.OpenArgs)
        If IsLoaded("frmS") Then
            If Not Form!frmS.Dirty Then
 
                frm.Undo
                frm.AllowAdditions = True
                frm.AllowEdits = False
                frm.AllowDeletions = False
                frm.DataEntry = True
        
        If IsLoaded("FrmSearch") Then
            DoCmd.Close acForm, "FrmSearch", acSaveNo    
    Else
        'Nothing to Reset
            If IsLoaded("FrmSearch") Then
                DoCmd.Close acForm, "FrmSearch", acSaveNo
            End If
        End If
    End If

Hi Bill,
How are you?
This link tells you what you have to do:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb214249.aspx
To make a form, report, or control active, you must use the SelectObject method of the DoCmd object.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa220730(office.11).aspx
______________________________
Set frm = Forms(Me.OpenArgs)
DoCmd.SelectObject acForm, frm.name, True   '<<<<<makes form the active form
------------------------------------------------
You can also test to see if a form is the active form in lieu of testing to see if it is loaded
If Screen.ActiveForm.Name = "frmS" Then

Hi Bill,
Attached is my take on your code as I understand it.  You did not provide a sample DB to test, so it is not tested.  Let me know if I am misinterpreting anything.

PDB
Dim strSearch As String
Dim frm As Form
 
 
Private Sub btnClose_Click()
    
        If Len(Me.OpenArgs & vbNullString) > 0 Then
            Set frm = Forms(Me.OpenArgs)
        End If
        
        If IsLoaded("frmS") Then
            DoCmd.SelectObject acForm, "frmS", True
            If Not Form!frmS.Dirty Then
 
                frm.Undo
                frm.AllowAdditions = True
                frm.AllowEdits = False
                frm.AllowDeletions = False
                frm.DataEntry = True
            End If
        End If
        
        If IsLoaded("frmW") Then
            DoCmd.SelectObject acForm, "frmW", True
            If Not Form!frmW.Dirty Then
 
                frm.Undo
                frm.AllowAdditions = True
                frm.AllowEdits = False
                frm.AllowDeletions = False
                frm.DataEntry = True
            End If
        End If
        
        If IsLoaded("frmT") Then
            DoCmd.SelectObject acForm, "frmW", True
            If Not Form!frmT.Dirty Then
 
                frm.Undo
                frm.AllowAdditions = True
                frm.AllowEdits = False
                frm.AllowDeletions = False
                frm.DataEntry = True
            End If
        End If
 
        If IsLoaded("FrmSearch") Then
            DoCmd.Close acForm, "FrmSearch", acSaveNo
        End If
End Sub

bill,
I seem to remeber that your search form is loaded in dialog mode.  If that is the case, you may need to unload it at the beginning instead of at the end like I have it above.
