I have a main form that opens with the application.  I have added a "Alerts" report for certain information that will be displayed each time the user logs in thus loading Form1.  Form1's Open Even will open the Alerts report in preview mode.  The problem is the report opens behind Form1 making it useless right now.  

I've tried DoCmd.SelectObject acReport, "Report", False  after the DoCmd.OpenReport code to no avail.  Form1 is not Modal nor is it set to remain on top of all other forms.

Any ideas will be appreciated.
