    To give some background my experience is basic databases and tables, some relationship editing. but all in Access 97 and 2000.

    I have had a little break from access and so am a little rusty. And to make it even harder on myself my company has just got MS Office Enterprise 2007 (which i like but am lost to where some of the things are).

    Now my problem,

    I am creating a data entry form for my database and have created the table and then created the form from that table (auto completed by Access). I have created the form in design View as a small box, but when I go to Form View it fills up the whole page.

    What I want is when this form is opened it is a small window (kind of like a popup). Now i managed to do this in Access 2003 in previous projects and I cannot remember how to do it now, and of course 2007 is different anyway.

    In design view and the Property All tab, Set the Form's Property "Pop up" to Yes, you might need to set Modal to yes as well
