Opening a form in a specific location on the screen

P: n/a
Greetings!

Is it possible to open a form in a specific location on the screen? I
have three cascading forms ... fill one in and then open another ...
fill that one in and open another. I want to keep each previous form
open and position the forms such that the user can see all three
(overlapping somewhat). Also, I want to make them modal (can't get
focus to the previous form until the current form is closed).

Is this possible? Is so, how?
Thanks.

Regards,
SueB

In the newly opened form's Open Event:
DoCmd.MoveSize 1440 * 1.5,1440* 4

All measurements are in Twips... 1440 per inch.
Look up the MoveSize method in VBA help.
