Move a form to particular position when opened from another form

I have a form that calls another form and I need that second form to open in a partiuclar position in the Windows screen. I  know it can be done, but what  have does not work.  This is an ACCESS 2003 database.

   DoCmd.OpenForm "frmClaimsParent", acNormal, , "ClaimNumber = '" & Me.ClaimNumber & "' "
    Forms!frmClaimsParent.Top = 1440
    Forms!frmClaimsParent.Left = 1440

This always works for me:

remember:  1440 twips per inch, so convert to inches
