On the reports properties, there are two properties that you should change to Yes: Pop Up and modal.

This will keep your report on top of other forms that you have open. To put in in Print Preview, open the report on View-Print Previw.

I don't have those in Access 2000.  I believe they were introduced in Access 2002 at the report level.

I work with Access 2003 so I can't tell if they exist in 2000 version. Sorry.

snyperj,

You have 3 options:

1. Maximize the report so they can't see or click the forms anyway.
(The easiest way)

2. Hide the forms when the report is open.
(Requires coding and Bullet proff logic)

3. Always set focus to the report when the forms are open.
(Requires coding and Bullet proff logic)

I reccommend Choice 1.
