Okay, this is probably another simple question... but I'm having problems calling another form from my main form.

I have a main form that is the focus of use. However, on this form I display a customer's information. When the user needs to find another customer, he/she types in a different customer id or customer name (last, first, middle) then clicks on a "Find" command button. If the user typed in a name, the program goes to the table and finds the closest match. What I want to do is put a "temporary" form on top of the main form that shows the closest matches, allows the user to choose, then go back to the main form where the customer data will be displayed.

I've got the second form, but when I go to display the second form, everything gets grayed out on the main form and the second form doesn't display. I'm sure the second form is there waiting for me behind the main form, I just can't get to it. Does this have something to do with modal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
