Do you want a specific form to be always on top or the whole program?

Operating System is Windows XP.
I want a specific form to be on top.  (I've added code to minimize the application window.)

ah keep in mind that the form will run within access, so even though its always on top. Soon as you minimize access it minimizes everything.

try setting the forms properties 'popup = yes" and see if works.

As for having it above all windows, Im afraid that can only be done if you run it as a MDE which doesn't need access open in background to run but it get kind of complicated at that point.

Also play around with the start up options... Because I have a feeling you are trying to lock it down for you users so they dont mess with stuff. In start up options you can acctually remove certain features of Access on startup unless the shift key is held whilst opening the file

1. Microsoft Office Button
2. Access Options
3. Current Database category
