    Is your database split between front end and back end?

    If so, you can further split your back end into seperate ones and link each one accordingly. A thought on this subject is to split it between tables that are changed regular and table that are primarily used as look up tables.

    how to call a sub procedure from other forms

    ON the import form, the following code had syntax problem:
    Call Forms!ReconForm!SetRecon

    (SetReocn is a sub procedure in the ReconForm!, Can I use the run function?)

    You just need to code

    Call SetRecon if the form is open and is the active form.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
