Popup warning outside of Access? Possible?

P: n/a
Is there a way to have a message popup ontop of all windows (not only
in Access, but ontop of other windows) to give users a warning
message?

Does windows XP itself have anykind of instant messaging?

Tom,
That's nice. However, one more problem, is there a way to have a
msgbox without user input? I modify your code and force it to open a
form instead, and the "vbSystemModal" does not work with Form.

P.S.: How about when everyone is out, and the database maintenance has
been completed, is there a message I can send to windows users that
they are allow to go back in? Any Windows messaging feature? (Not
requires to install any program? Is that possible?

thanks for your help.

Tom,
Thanks. That's wonderful to know. However, my other challenge is:

1. If someone is away from their desk, I sent them a message to give
them a warning, but they did not get it. How can I force the database
to close by itself upon my request (turn on a button) without idletime
event? Because by using the message box, it will require the user
input, at least an "OK" Right?

2. Or is that a docmd that will close a message box?

Thanks again.

Tom,
Thanks. (BTW, this is my 3rd post trying to reply to you but
I guess this forum is having some technical issues?) I am going to
post this one and if it goes thru, I will post couple more questions,
which are still my challenges.

Thanks again,
Perry
