Hi

Is there any system variable which tells the previous form.. i.e. the form from which the current form is opened

I don't think so. Store the name of the current form in a global variable before you do the call and then read it after.

Remember
CALLING_FORM
- Returns the name of the calling form if the current form was invoked by the CALL_FORM built-in. If the current form is not a called form, Form Builder returns NULL.

You will have to test to see what is returned when you use 'open_form' or 'new_form'.
