Make a .gif? I don't know if .gif animations work in Access though, worth a try.

Don't expect us to do all the work for you, you have to at least try. We can guide you in the general direction and help out with specific implementation issues.

It depends what you mean about animations. Are you looking to make labels flash, to change colour backgrounds or what?

I think Rabbit has the right idea, but you'll need an ActiveX Control to accomplish this. You could also experiment with Insert ==> Object ==> *.avi for Embedding/Linking a Movie within your Form. This Link will show you how to use Animated GIFs in Access if you are interested. Good Luck.

thanks for the idea....yes i want a label flash but i have tried that already...i had make the label flash...i want now how to make a unique command buttons... with colors...i have seen a forms like that but i dont know if what are the codes.
i want also the codes that when i close the form it would not just automatically close instead it will close with effects like shrinking or moving sideward....yeah i want the codes for that..

Open the properties of the command buttons and go to the Picture property on the format tab. Add you picture here using the wizard (click button with dots on right of property).

This is unrealistic as it's very difficult (almost impossible) to control and would be too heavy a load on the database.

Have a look at the ActiveX control list for the kind of things you can introduce to forms.
