Cancel parameter input and load switchboard

P: 2
Hello All,

I'm quite a novice but I'm trying to get a database together at work. I have an effective database but I'm trying to tie up all the loose ends to make it fool proof!

I have a select query attachted to a form. The query asks the user to enter some data in order to retrieve the results. The form is then attachted to my switchboard. A button on my switchboard closes the switchboard and opens the form via a macro.

The thing is if you press "cancel" to the option to enter criteria it closes the form. How do I get it to re open the switch the board when the user selects "Cancel". I suspect I need to go back to the query and put something in here but I'm not sure what.

Any Advice much appreciated!

Laura, are you referring to a Form whose Record Source is a Parameterized Query? If this is the case, you basically cannot take any action based on the User cancelling the Parameter Prompt. You would then need an alternative Method of requesting the Parameter from the User, so you can control his/her Response.

Never close the Switchboard form. Simply hide it, but only when the other form has opened successfully.
