Hello Experts.

I'm wondering how can i use vba to open a specific switchboard page.

For example, i have 2 switchboard pages (main and admin).  on my main page i have an option "Admin Login" when clicked a dialog form opens prompting the user for password, while the main switchboard is still open.

in my dialog form i have:

If me.txtPassword <> "password" Then
   MsgBox "try again"
    'code to switch stwchboard page
   DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmAdmin"
End If

can anyone help me out please?

thank you.
