Experts,

May I ask for your help with this one?

I call a report from a button event on my form. The problem lies when the print preview goes 'behind' the form with the print buttons. Users simply 'close' the form to 'see' the print preview. The problem is that once the form is closed users have no way of going back to the form OR back to the main menu from the form.

Is there a way I can force the print preview to display in front of the form.  Something like a Z-Index.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Mike
