Not sure if we're talking about the same thing here, but you don't
create a hidden module, you hide a module that has already been
created.

You hide one the same way you would hide any other Access object
(Form, Table, etc.). Right-click on the Module.
Select Properties. Place a check in the Hidden attribute box.

You would hide an object so that the user(s) can't see it or modify
it, or in the case of a table, enter data directly into it.

To unhide a hidden object, click on Tools + Options + View.
Place a check in the show Hidden Objects box.

Remember to then uncheck the box to hide the objects again.

Thx, Fred. I see now. It's fairly simply, actually. I don't see real
value in it. I was wondering about it though. 'preciate your input.

Or, you prefix "USYS" to the beginning of the object's name, and it
becomes a "system" object...
