Search Form not working in Navigation Form - "Object X isn't open"

P: 21
I'm a new user to access so I will try to explain this to the best of my abilities.

I created a search form for my records, 'PBTSearchF' When I open the form alone it works fine. However, I want it to be within a navigation form.
I put it in the navigation target name 'PBTSearchF' and it shows up fine. However when I go to search I get the error message; "The object 'PBTSearchF' isn't open. PBT Search Command Cancelled"
Also, the search form does work in the Main Menu if the 'PBTSearchF' is also open.

Thanks for the Help!

Take a look at the post in this question that was chosen as Best Answer: Navigation Control - Subforms. ZMBD does a wonderful job explaining about how Navigation controls work.

That helped a bit. So do I have to go back into my code to include the [MainMenu]?

Assuming that MainMenu is the name of the form that your Navigation control is on, then yes.

James, a bit more detail would help... Please see the sticky thread on posting code... Then if you would, post the VBA that is causing you grief. :)
