multiple records open with forms

P: n/a
Hp
Hello,

Is it possible to have more than one record from the same table open on the
screen using forms? If you have an contact list for example and want to
check a phone number whilst editing an adress.
How would that be coded?

Thanx for help

It is quite easy to open multiple instances of a form, with the New keyword.

Managing them independently of each other involves creating a custom
collection. Details and downloadable example in:

Hi,

I'd recommend that you experiment with setting the 'Default View'
property of the form to 'Continuous Forms'. You might find that you
need a more complex solution (which you'll have no trouble getting on
this newsgroup!), but continuous forms might be all you need.
