The called form you say is on top. Is it not enabled or the datasource giving a problem? Are the two forms sharing the same data? Datasesion default or private?

I do this all the time so it does work. Just a question of tracking what is not set to default.

One step at a time.. go back to basics and play with a dummy form/s.
