Run-time error '2450'

I'm loading a form from another form (Main_Menu) using this code attached to a button event:

Me.Visible = False
DoCmd.OpenForm "Module_Menu"

This works well, but when exiting the form, I have code attached to another button to close out and return to the main menu (simple enough supposedly):

Forms!Main_Menu.Visible = True
DoCmd.Close

At that point I get the run-time error '2450'  Access can't find the form 'Main_Menu' referred to in a macro expression or Visual Basic code.

Hopefully it's a simple fix--yet it's become very frustrating.

Thanks in advance for your assistance....

also check if name of the main form "Main_Menu" have an underscore or a space,
if a space you need to enclose he name in brackets

Forms![Main Menu].visible=true

also make sure to carefully check your spelling of these names in your actual db.
Main_Menu
Mian_Menu

This is a common error with mis-spellings...

Also make sure there is no code anywhere that actuality closes the Main Menu

Compacted & repaired database, and compiled.  Made a few corrections, but still having the same issue.

I'm going to export the form, delete it, compact db, and re-install the form.  I'm open to any other thoughts....

try this codes

create a global variable in a regular module

public CalledBy as string
------------------------------

from the main form, opening the other form

Me.Visible = False
DoCmd.OpenForm "Module_Menu", openArgs:=Me.name



in the load event of form "Module_Menu" place this codes

private sub form_load()

if me.openargs & ""<>"" then
  CalledBy=Me.OpenArgs
end if

end sub


in closing the form "Module_Menu" , use this codes

Forms(CalledBy).Visible=True

OK, reversed the lines in the exit buttom from:

Forms!Main_Menu.Visible = True
DoCmd.Close

---to---

DoCmd.Close
Forms!Main_Menu.Visible = True

and it works now.

Apparently, the Main_Menu was "visible" just behind the existing screen, and probably had focus, and was probably closing (couldn't see it so it's hard to tell for sure).  

The error 2450 happened after pressing the button again (nothing was appearing to happen.)

I'll split the points for your assistance.  It's very much appreciated.

In the mean time, I'll kindly accept the Dumb*** of the Week Award--thankfully, it's Friday.
