I currently have an access DB where forms are jumping from one monitor to a second monitor without code making it happen. Basically the as the user navigates through the forms the forms jump from one to the other. I need to know if you can assign a default monitor for all forms to open in?

handling of monitors/displays is handled solely by the operating system, and any setting should be done there. access doesnt have any "knowledge" of where (and if) it's forms are being displayed

 As ErezMor has said, it's really out of your control.  You can do a move on the main Access window and control it after the fact, but that's about it.  Everything else is under OS control.

  Because the dula-monitor functionaility in XP and up is poor, there are a multitude of 3rd party apps to control dual monitor setups and where and how applications appear.

  No points here please...

What version of Office?
What version of Windows?

Many interface design elements and settings have changed with regard to what a "Window" really is and how it behaves:
(Tabbed documents in Access 2007, Win 7 graphic options, ...etc)

Like Jim, I know that "Dual Monitor" support can be done in many different ways, so you will have to take a close look at what technology your are using to manage this.

My guess is that your utility may "sense" when more than x number of windows are open, then automatically moves any other windows to the other monitor...?

OS=Vista
Office=2007

The problem is that it only moves certain windows from 1 monitor to the other.
