Hello!

Well, hopefully this question is not too silly, but I am a complete newbie in need of some direction. Two quick questions about navigation.

First, how can I open a new form, while closing the current form. I've tried this:

VB.NET:
 Dim f2 As DataForm1 
 
f2 = New DataForm1
 
f2.Show()
 
Me.Close()
But that closes the entire application. Any ideas?

The second question involves dynamic content from an ms access database. I guess, to make a long story short, I'd like to have two forms (list, details). The list shows all records, which each link to the detail form which then displays requested information etc... I know this question probably cannot be answered in a simple post, but if anyone has some direction for me (tutorial etc..) I would really appreciate it.

Anyway, I apologize again if these are silly questions, but I'm having a hard time getting past them.

Thanks for help in advance!!!!
