problems keeping window maximized

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have a form set to maximize on load (docmd.maximize) but when i open
another form by clicking a button on my main form, it restores itself
to its default window size, is there anyway I can prevent this? thanks
in advanced techies :)

I've used this method before, but, after time, I've come to the
conclusion that it really isn't worthwhile; mainly, 'cuz the forms lock
up - they can't be moved around the screen after these events run (this
was in Access 97). This drove the users crazy (at least the ones who
knew that they "should" be able to move forms around).

In the Form's On Activate event procedure put a maximize command. In
the form's Resize event procedure put a maximize or restore command.
This last one is, I suspect, the action that causes the form to lock up.
