    I have recently inherited two databases. I would like to know if it is
    possible to set a button on a form in one database and have it open a form on
    the other databse when clicked

    thanks.

    Currently, Access does not support loading more than one database at a time,
    however, you could import the "soft" objects (forms, reports, etc.) from the
    other database and link its tables in. I frequently start out creating a
    mini-app, and later combine them into a menu-driven multi-application file.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, but it will require expert coding

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
