I have a form that normally opens as a single form and uses a table as its record source.  But I want to also be able to open the form from a command button on a menu form in continuous mode and use a query as it's record source.

How do I code this?

You can't switch a form from single form view to continuous forms at runtime.  That is a design-view only option.

So, create a form similar to your original (you can even copy it) and set your query as its recordsource. Set the default view to continuous forms.

Then just open it like any other form:

Docmd.OpenForm "YourContinuousFormName"

Ok.  But that's a shame because if I make a design change in one I have to make the same change in the other one.  Oh well.

Thanks much.

The alternative is data sheet view, which CAN be set at runtime...
