Property ActiveForm As Form
read only
Member of Access.Screen

Checking this property you can know wich is the Active Form.

So :

If Screen.ActiveForm.Name="PopupNameForm" then Msgbox "YESS"

Thank you for the prompt responce, but I have no idea what you are
saying. Basically I just want to know how to predetermine the location
on a form that a popup form will appear.

Thank you
Coy

Hi Coy, sorry Delete my Replay due to my very bad English.

So for Location you can explore Left/Top property of Form.

Coy,

Open your form in design view then open propoerties and go to the AutoSize and
AutoCenter properties and set them to No. Add an unbound textbox anywhere on
your form. Click the View button at the far left on the toolbar at the top of
the screen. Click on the title bar of your form and drag it to where you want it
to appear each time it opens. Close your form and answer Yes to save the change
to the form. Open your form again in design view and delete the unbound textbox.
The only purpose of the textbox is to get Access if you want to save the changes
where one of the changes is the form's position. Chanhing the position on its
own won't cause Access to ask if you want to save changes.
