open a form without opening Access window

P: 7
Hello, Is there a way of opening an Access form without opening the Access window? Right now when I open the form, the Access window is a lot bigger than the form so I have to resize the Access window so it doesn't take up my whole screen (the form is about 2" x 3"). If there is no way to open only the form without the Access window opening, is there a way to automatically set the size of the Access window and close the menu bar?\
Thanks!

How skilled are you with the VBA language? We recently had an interesting thread on this. In this thread we were able to hide the MS Access application and show the form only. Your form must be set to popup and Modal. Let me know if this helps at all. There are ways to resize the application window and hide the menus etc. just depends on what approach you would like to take.
