Form not displayed

I have added a form to an existing Access 2007 frontend.  When I click on the button that opens the form nothing is displayed.  And more importantly when I am in the developer and I click Open on the form nothing happens.  I have compared the properties of my new form and an existing one that works.  I can't find a difference in any property that would explain the non-display.

    Accepted Solution

    Could it somehow be off your screen? In other words, maybe it is opening but off your visible workspace. Make your AutoCenter property "Yes" and then show the form.


    Assisted Solution

    In addition to AutoCenter Yes I also had to set Auto Resize Yes.  Then it displayed in the Access screen space.  The existing form I used as a model opens on the windows  main display screen.  I run 4 monitors.

    Ended up using the original form and a switch to control logic.
