button to switch forms

    I have a version of a form that I'm calling "Intake Mode."
    When a record is added, it uses that form.

    On the main form, I created a button called "Go to Intake Mode" which switches to that form.
    Here is the problem: it opens it in View, and if you click "edit," then it reverts to the main form because that is the form used for editing. I don't want to change the editing form to always be "Intake Mode"; I want to be able to edit in the main form as well.

    Is there a way to have my button open the "Intake Mode" form in Edit instead of View?

    Here is the formula:
    URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=dr&dfid=17&rid=" & [Record ID#]

    I think you only option will be to make a big button on he Intake form to EDIT ON INTAKE FORM.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I don't know how to do that. Any tips?

    The part of your link that says "a=dr" is the important bit here. What that is saying is Action=DisplayRecord. If you want to edit something change that to a=er which is short for Action=EditRecord. That should be all you need to switch.
