Sorry Mick, just read your thread again.
You want a simple "answer" (I spend most days trying to simplify the stuff
that other people do on our d bases).
So here is a "simple" answer.
Why not copy your data input form. Remove all links to other sections ofReference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=12004
the d base (buttons, etc) and also remove the the ms toolbar from "this"
form. Make this form the one that is opened when your users make thier
This may need a bit of gigging about about to get what you want but it is
"simple". Of course you "can" code your standard form to do all this on
responce to input (button press from user) BUT what's the point.
