    Forms position next to another

    So, I have a form that has a button that would open two small forms stacked on top of each other next to right side of a main form. I used “DoCmd.MoveSize...” to position the two small forms. They are currently perfectly positioned based on the main form being positioned using the same method (DoCmd.MoveSize...). The problem is when the main form is moved after opening it, and the aforementioned button is pressed afterwards, the two small forms would be out of position. What's the best way to figure out the exact position of the top right side of the main form upon the button is pushed, so I can use variables to figure out where I should position the two small forms?

    Why would you need 2 separate forms that 1 form/subForm can't do?

    Well, The main form has certain financial data from a query. Instead of overloading the form with extra data, I created two small forms for anyone who wants projected related information that's not financial. I guess I can combine the two small forms to one form with subForm. Still I need to be able to position two forms right next to each other, one main one and one combined one now.

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