Splash form problem

    Hi

    I have created a splash form with no border. When I try to open this form in
    my main form using DoCmd.OpenForm "Splash", , , , , acDialog, the splash
    form opens with a form border. If I use DoCmd.OpenForm "Splash" then splash
    form opens without a border as desired but then the main form starts to
    appear before splash form has gone.

    How can I get the splash form to open without a border?

    Thanks

    Regards

    Set the Border type to Thin.

    How does the user close the Splash form after it's opened in Dialog mode?
    Normally, one would open a Splash form and let that form's Timer event run
    code after x seconds to close it and open another form.

    I am using the timer to close the splash form too. Tried the thin border,
    still no luck. Attached is how the splash form appears.

    The image has no border, so I don't understand what you're wanting to
    achieve? Are you wanting to get rid of the blue bar at top? That cannot be
    done... but you can use the form's Caption property to put your desired text
    there.
