The code attached works for a form called frm010Login but not for a form called from102Menu (or quite a lot of other forms).  

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance
Public Function Test3()
 

   Dim frm As Form, ctl As Control, s As String

   Set frm = Forms!frm012Menu

   For Each ctl In frm

      Debug.Print ctl.Name

   Next ctl
 

End Function

Open in new window

if thats the name of your form, put it in quotes, does it make a difference?

set frm = forms("frm012Menu")

ah, it just clicked

form isnt open therefore it cant find it

so open the form, you can open it hidden also

eg open form for edit but hidden

    DoCmd.OpenForm "form1", acDesign, , , acFormEdit, acHidden
