Form Timers

Hello

Does anyone know what happens if the OnTimer procedure of a form occures at
the same time as :
- The OnTimer of another form?
- A user activated procedure or action?

Could this cause the program to crash?

I'm using Access 2000

Thanks

I wouldn't know. However, you could test this out quickly. Create 2
temp tables. Then create 2 forms, each with a command button to exit.
In the OnTimer event put in some code to add a record to a table. Set
the timer event to 1000 for 1 second or a lessor amount to try to get a
colision in times....like 10....or 1. If set to 1, you should expect
1000 records a second. Then fire up both forms and wait a few minutes.
Then see how many records were created in each table.
