How open a form with all controls locked?

I have a form that I have opening as read only but it appears that some calculated fields aren't calculating in this mode.  So I want the form to open with all controls locked.  How can this be done?

On error resume next is generally not advisable as good error handling, but it will do the trick for this limited function.

Actually I'm opening the form from a hyperlink control on another form.  Where do I put the code:

Dim CTL as control
On error resume next
 For each CTL in me.controls
       CTL.locked = true
  Next

Its like the 2nd form has to check to see if the 1st form with the hyperlink is open and if so, do the code you wrote, right?

Try it In the open event of the form you are opening
