found acPreview...


The report preview is opening underneath my form. How do I make it open on top of my form?

Turn off the Modal or Pop-up property of the form...
This is what stops other things form opening on top of it.

Or,...
Depending on your version of Access, you can can try this on the code that opens the report:

DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview
Reports!YourReportName.SetFocus

I tried this:

DoCmd.OpenReport "Report Report", acPreview
Reports!Report Report.SetFocus

It doesn't like the second line, apparently this is either because there is a space in my report name or because Report is a reserved word. I tried putting Report Report in quotes.

"Modal" is how I was able to make the form not fill the entire screen.  Is there another way to do that?

Changed Pop-up for the report to "Yes" to make the report open on top of the form.

Yes, please do not use spaces in your object names for this reason, and adopt a standard naming convention:

...but to fix this as is use this:
    Reports![Report Report].SetFocus
