How to keep a form maximized if another form not maximized is open

    What I am trying to do is keep the main screen maximized even when a user
    want to utilize a smaller form that is used to print out. Is there a way to
    open the second form not maxmized and keep the first form maximized?

    Thanks in advance,
    John

  2. Set the 'Popup' property of the second form (you'll find it on the 'Other'
    tab in the 'Properties' window in form design view) to 'Yes'.

    a useable e-mail address at the URL above.
