    Default Access: Close a Form that is not the Active form

    Can you close one form from another? I know you can close the form you're on by using DoCmd.Close , "". How do I close another form. I need to make sure its not open when I run code.

    Thanks

    Try:
    Code:
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "FormName"
    and put the actual name of your form in the part in red.
