How to open a Report on top of the switchboard as referring form closes

A simple form with a combo box allows the user to select a service manager in order to open a report to list this person's action items.  This same method is used for two different reports.   One report opens in front of the Switchboard for immediate use.   I need the other to do the same, but it opens behind the Switchboard.  I don't know that anything is different between the forms/reports/code.  

How can I ensure a Report is opened in front of the Switchboard as the selecting Form is closed?

Listed below is the procedure that works, followed by the one that doesn't:

Private Sub cboNBitemSelect_AfterUpdate()
Dim SelectedCSM As String
SelectedCSM = Me!cboNBitemSelect.Column(0)
DoCmd.Close acForm, "fm_CSMSelectForNBReport"
If SelectedCSM = "All CSMs" Then
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rpNewBusinessStatus", acViewReport
Else
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rpNewBusinessStatus", acViewReport, , "NBCSM = '" & SelectedCSM & "'"
End If
End Sub

Private Sub cboCSitemSelect_AfterUpdate()
Dim SelectedCSM As String
SelectedCSM = Me!cboCSitemSelect.Column(0)
DoCmd.Close acForm, "fm_CSMSelectForCSReport"
If SelectedCSM = "All CSMs" Then
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rpClientServiceStatus", acViewReport
Else
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rpClientServiceStatus", acViewReport, , "CS_CSM = '" & SelectedCSM & "'"
End If
End Sub

DoCmd.OpenReport "rpNewBusinessStatus", acViewReport, windowmode:=acDialog
