Open multiple instances of same form in ACCESS 2010

I have a sales database in which the sales men like to enter the products sold and then compare different prices, discounts and credits on all the products for the customer.  These determinations by the salesman will vary by what they want and what they want to give to the customer at what price so they compare different sceanrios totals on separate forms.  The form itself is an unbound form with the master form holding the client data and the detail being a subform where they would enter the different items for the customer.  Data is held in a temp table until they make a decision, then all the not chosen sceanrios are deleted and the saved one is posted to the database.  But how do to I allow the sales man to open several of the same form to create their sales estimations?

You can do it as simply as this:

Dim f As Form
Set f = New Form_YourFormName
f.Visible = True

You can have troubles working with multiple instances of the same form, however. To manage some of those, see this article by Allen Browne:
