I am building a new form, I think it will contain possibly 4 sub forms due to the data types and Criteria in the forms being grouped together.

I am thinking of a way to hide / unhide the forms when not in use - otherwise it will look quite busy.

Is it just a button to show / Hide the forms or is there a better way to do this ?

I was hoping for something like a "+" sign and by clicking on the "+" the form then unrolled itself below.

Any thoughts ?

Would using a Tab Control be acceptable to you?

Or just have the one subform control and change the source object depending no which subform is required

I went for the tabbed approach, working quite well at the moment. Thanks..
