Switchboard stops my forms' VBA code from working?

P: 39
I have several forms that I've built...
Most of them have some sort of VBA code built in somewhere, like:
  • Select a record with the key-value control, and the rest of the controls position to that record
  • "OnChange event: Set <that> bound control equal to the value of <this> unbound control"
  • ...etc.
Straightforward stuff. The record positioning code was created by Access's wizard for creating a combobox, for example.

These forms work perfectly when I launch them from the Database window.

However, I just created a switchboard, and when I launch them from the switchboard, the forms no longer work properly -for example, if I select a key value, the remaining controls remain blank.

Is there a simple reason?
I hate being new to this... I just must be missing something simple and obvious, because a switchboard is designed to launch these things (and reports, etc), correct?

For starters, when you say you "created a switchboard" arer you taliking about one made with the Switchboard Manager or a regular form you've created to act as a switchboard?
