When should Activate happen?

P: n/a

I'm working with Access 2K and seem to be getting some behavior that
contradicts the documentation. First, the help says:

"Note The Activate event doesn't occur when a form receives focus back
from a dialog box, popup, or another form."

This doesn't seem to be the case. The form activate consistently fires when
focus moves from another form.

Secondly, the activate event for a report. I am seeing it fire consistently
if I open the report acViewPreview, but never if I open the report
acViewNormal. I can find no mention of this discrepancy in the docs.

Am I missing something here, or are the docs wrong?

In a report, the Activate ONLY fires in Preview, never in Print.

I'm still looking for an answer. Am I wrong or is the documentation? Or,
are there conditions where it won't fire?
