How to link a form from one database to another

P: n/a
We have multiple databases created with forms in them. I want to
create a master form that can link to any of the other database forms.
If you have all of the tables and forms, ect., in one database, you
can macro or wizard to them. How can I put a command button in for
each form, with the master form linking to other databases forms?

AFAIK, you can't. You can link to *tables* in other databases, but
not forms. Well, I've never figured out how...

I remember doiung this by attaching the 'child' databases to the
'parent' as libraries - .mda files - in a project some years ago. I do
not recall the details now, but should be worth looking 'Library' or
'.mda' up in the documentation.
Cheers,
Doug
