Is it possible to open calc.exe inside a access form? what I want to do is
have the simple time keeping mde file to open up and auto load the calc.exe
file "inside" of the same window as the mde is. Noty as a second window. I
want it to load "inside" the same window as the mde. Is this possible?

No! You can call the app with the shell-command, but it will not
"hang" into the window
