Splash form problem

P: n/a
Hi

I have created a splash form with no border. When I try to open this form in
my main form using DoCmd.OpenForm "Splash", , , , , acDialog, the splash
form opens with a form border. If I use DoCmd.OpenForm "Splash" then splash
form opens without a border as desired but then the main form starts to
appear before splash form has gone.

How can I get the splash form to open without a border?

Thanks

Regards

I'm not sure if your definition of a splash form is the same as mine,
but try this:

make the popup property of the splash form yes and make sure there's no
border in the form's format properties

Set the splash form as the display form in your startup options
(tools->startup)

In the on close event of the splash form have docmd.openform whatever
your main menu/whatever form is.
