I tried doing this and the problem of stopping the control program from continuing ceases. But now, I can't get my form to return control to the calling program. I tried using a thisform.close statement, but it seems that close isn't a method of the form. RELEASE thisform gets through, but doesn't work. What can I do to close this form?

Thank you in advance for your help.
