Syntax to divide form values and update table as percentage with 2 decimals; close form and open another form

The following is the VBA code I wrote to update a table from a form.  I have two questions.

First I want to divide the form entries:

Me.txtXM / Me.txtTM and update the table field XMPERC as a Percentage with 2 decimal places.

Second I need to close the open form frmSR1 and reopen frmEvalMenu.

What is the syntax for this?

Private Sub Command27_Click()
 'Update tbl_SR1 with Blood Data
     Dim db As DAO.Database
     Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
     Set db = CurrentDb
     Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tbl_SR1", dbOpenDynaset)
     rs.Fields("ProviderID") = Me.Text16
     rs.Fields("XM") = Me.txtXM
     rs.Fields("TX") = Me.txtTX
     rs.Fields("RptDate") = Me.Text20
     rs.Fields("XMPERC") = Format(Me.txtXM / Me.txtTX, "000.00")
     Set rs = Nothing
     'Clear All Selections and Return to Physician Evaluation Menu
     DoCmd.Close acForm, "frm_SR1"
 End Sub

You've got the first part figured out (closing frmSR1).  This will open frmEvalMenu:

Docmd.OpenForm "EvalMenu"

But I recommend doing it in the reverse order.  Open the menu first, then close the frmSR1.  That way, you won't be left looking at a blank screen if frmEvalMenu takes a while to load:

  Docmd.OpenForm "EvalMenu"
  DoCmd.Close acForm, "frm_SR1"

Take a look at the tables design, and ensure that the XMPERC field has it's Length property set to Double (this property is found in the box under the list of fields, and defaults to Integer)

Then, write your equation like this:

rs.Fields("XMPERC") =  Me.txtXM / Me.txtTX

And handle the formatting through the field properties and/or through the textboxes used to display it.

If txtTX can ever be null or zero, you would need special handling to avoid errors:

If NZ(me.txtTX, 0) = 0 then
    ' do something to handle nulls and zeros to avoid division errors
    if isnumeric( Me.txtXM ) = true then
         rs.Fields("XMPERC") =  Me.txtXM / Me.txtTX
        ' Handle null or non-numeric txtXM)
    end if 
End if
