Make form open with Text Boxes hidden.

P: n/a

My form has has seven Text Boxes to receive user input. Users fall into
either of two categories, Current and New. 'Command_Button_New' changes
the visible property of four text Boxes and their Labels from False to
True and 'Command_Button_Current' changes the visibility from True to
False. I want the Form to open with three Text Boxes in view ready for
current user input. New users should select 'Command_Button_New' to
display the four additional TB's. The 'Command_Button_Current' returns
the form to show only three TB's.

Problem is that the form opens with all seven TB's visible (for new
user). How do I instruct it to open with the TB's hidden?

Open the form's property sheet. Select all 4 textboxes at once (hold
shift key while clicking on each textbox) or select 1 at a time. Click
the format tab of the property sheet. Set the Visible property to No.
Save form. Run.
