DoCmd.Maximize prevents form from persisting

P: n/a
A process presents frmSecond for user entry; user closes when done.

Code for opening the form is
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmSecond", acNormal, , strWHERE, , acDialog

Problem: frmSecond does not remain on the screen. Instead, it shows again
after the process calling it has completed.

Can anyone tell me what might be causing it to "hide" itself until the
process completes?

Thanks for any help.

What is your code in frmSecond in the OnOpen or OnActivate event? By
calling frmSecond with acDialog, all execution after the OpenForm
statement is stopped until the form frmSeconds is closed or made invisible.
