    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
