You should be able to do this by changing the windowmode (second to last last argument in the OpenReport method)

docmd.OpenReport "rptname", acViewPreview,,, acDialog

You might also be able to accomplish it by changing the Popup property of the report (on the Other tab of the properties dialog) to Yes.

Or hide the form when the report is previewed.

Also, make sure the "Form" is not opened in Dialog or pop-up mode...
As this will prevent other windows (ie, ...your report) from opening up on top.

All in all, if the form is opened normally, ... and the report is opened from a button on the form, ...the report should be on top.
This is the standard behavior.
