We have created a database with a form that populates the database. Currently when we open Access the form opens immediately. However the Access program opens behind the form. We would like to know how to have only the form open with out the having the program open behind the form.

IOW,  you can't.  The application has to open before it creates one of its objects.  You can be 'sneaky' and hide the opeing screen, but nevertheless, the app has to be opened before the object can be created.

The code I posted allows you to do that.  Did you try that approach ?
