Closing forms

I have a form that, when I'm entering data, uses information from another form.

What I'd like to do is
1. Save the current record (easy enough: just close the form)
2. Close the OTHER form before closing the currently open one, but making sure that the information I'm am getting (e.g. a customer number) gets into the table.
3. Close the current form.

I've done a lot of searching, but I can't seem to find anything.

Thanks,

Basically closing forms you will need these if you put it in this order then OtherForm will close first and then currently open will.

You have to decide where you put this - if you make a button for it or it is somehow otherwise triggered.


DoCmd.Close acForm, "OtherForm"
DoCmd.Close acForm, "CurrentlyOpen"

To make sure that the value has been added to the current form use:

if not isnull(The Value) then
DoCmd.Close acForm, "OtherForm"
DoCmd.Close acForm, "CurrentlyOpen"
else
msgbox " No value has been added to the form")
end if

Yes you are going to have to fill in more details of what the user can do and when they can do it.  Yadtrt has for example added one possibility, which assumes that users must enter information in this textbox(or whatever control it is).

I assumed that these forms are bound and thus letting Access to all the saving work.

Think about it differently. Why do you look at it that you need to close the Form first.

Do it in the following steps
1. Save the current record. (This will ensure you save the "other" form dependent data )
2. Close "other" form
3. Close Current Form

'Step 1 Save Current Record
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
'Step 2 Close other Form
DoCmd.Close acForm, "Other"
'Step 3 Close Current Form
DoCmd.Close acForm, "Current"

Thanks.

I was mostly just not remembering the DoCmd.RunCommand part.
