You have to pass them both in one string, separated by commas (or whatever), and then in your form.Open event parse the OpenArgs string into it's separate pieces.

OpenArgs does not support an array of multiple values.

I don't have it on me, so I'll step back to encourage other experts to respond.

docmd.openform "GrantExpenditures", openargs:=me.grantid &";" & me.agencyid


now use the load event of form "GrantExpenditures" to get values

private sub form_load()
if len(me.openargs)> 0 then
      'pass the values accordingly
      me.grantid=split(me.openargs,";")(0)
      me.agencyid=split(me.openargs,";")(1)

end if

end sub
