    is there any way to open a form in the foreground without opening an
    Access window behind it? I did find a post to program hiding the access
    window. is there anything more straightforward in the more recent
    releases?

    Well, word, excel, and ms-access all have worked this way for about 10,
    perhaps 15 years now. So, it is not like this type of interface will confuse
    your users!!! After all, ms-access is part of office, and works the same
    way as word, and excel (likely the two most popular software applications on
    the planet).

    Further, to hide the gray background, you could always maximize your form
    anyway. So, office has been this way for a long time, and users have come to
    expect this.

    In a2007, you can choose between the current forms, or you can use the new
    "default" mode in which forms shown in tabbed interface. So, you don't get
    the gray background, but a ribbon menu, and a tabbed interface. It is quite
    nice.

    Last, but not least, for my applications, I always built a menu bar, and
    thus no code or "special" tricks was needed to hide the ms-access interface.

    Take a look at the following screen shots:
    http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/Articles/UseAbility/UserFriendly.htm

    You most certainly can, and should hide all of the ms-access interface. The
    options to complete hide and keep people out of the ms-access interface can
    easily be done using the tools->start-up options. Using those options allows
    you to complete hide the ms-access interface (tool bars, database window
    etc). Also, using these options means you do not have to bother setting up
    security.

    Try downloading and running the 3rd example at my following web site that
    shows a hidden ms-access interface, and NO CODE is required to do
    this....but just some settings in the start-up.

    Check out:

    http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/msaccess/DownLoad.htm

    After you try the application, you can exit, and then re-load the
    application, but hold down the shift key to by-pass the start-up options. If
    want, you can even disable the shift key by pass. I have a sample mdb file
    that will let you "set" the shift key bypass on any application you want.
    You can get this at:
