Where is the option to have the form run in its own window. Currently my form runs in the same workspace as design view and people can see the tables and other queries.  I can't seem to find the setting to do this.

Thanks

Lat.

I assume you are referring to a pop-up form.
Set the form's Pop-up property to true.

It is up to you to size the Access window so that it can't be seen behind the pop-up.

Access is like an MDI, all forms run within MSAccess. There is a setting in Tools/Options that allow forms to be shown in the taskbar but if you want to hide tables and queries, you can hide the database window. Again in tools/options. Of course there are ways round this, so ensure you disable the shortcut keys for that also.

There is no setting for that.  That's the way it is.  You can hide the main Access window, but all windows do run in the main Access window whether your see it or not.
