MS Access 2010 Hide Form

Hi Experts,

I have Form A open.  I click a button and Form B opens and Form A closes as I don't want the User to have access to it at that point.  Form A doesn't access a Database (which allows it to re-link to other copies of databases etc.) but form B does.  Eventually I close Form B and open Form A again.  i.e. Reverse the process.

 I would like to 'hide' Form A instead of closing it when I open Form B which will allow me to pass data between  unbound fields on Form A and then 'un-hide' Form A when I close Form B.

 I don't know the syntax to 'hide' and 'un-hide' Form A (assuming it can be done).  There isn't a '.visible' Property for a Form Object that I can see.

Is this possible and if so how do I do it.

 Bob C.

Use this syntax from another form or module:
Forms!frmYouWantToHide.Visible = False

or this from the class module of the form itself (e.g if you have a command button on Form A to open Form B:
Me.visible = False

To unhide the form, use True instead of False.
