New computer - popup forms not popping up
Posted on 2011-09-15
I have a new computer and now the popup forms are not popping up.
I removed the popup format on the form that was to popup (Popup = Yes to Popup = No) and put a Dialogue format on the macro that is opening this popup.
Now the form opens in Popup but it is strange because teh Popup ppty is set to NO.
I have noticed that since I switched to the new computer that many of my popup forms no longer popup (I think the form is now behind another form, I hit alt f4 to close it).
Maybe an expert has ran into this issue and can tell me exactly how to fix. Maybe there are some extra settings I am missing that have been set that should be looked at. I know there are some settings under document window options found under:
Access Options / Current Database / Document Window Options
(I have it set to Tabbed and Display Document Tabs)
It seems the only solution is to set to the Popup ppty = NO and maybe make it open in Dialogue from the parent form. It is very odd that the issues started only after moving to a new computer.
I have XP Pro and 2k7.
