Instead of a startup form, create a macro named AutoExec, with the OpenForm
action. In the lower pane of the macro design window, set the Window Mode to
Hidden.

Alternatively, use an unbound form as your startup form. In its Open event
procedure, use OpenForm to open another form hidden, run any initialization
code, and then Cancel this form's Open event (so that the initialization
code is unloaded from memory).
