pass variable between projects

Is this possible?  Even a non-traditional, "cheating" way around the problem will work for me at this point, as the lack of a solution here is resulting in corrupt database records....

So, can I access the value of a variable I declared and gave value to in a project (.vbp - I have two in the app) from the second project?  OR, along the same lines, can I get to a checkbox on the form the second project is called from?  Something along the lines of
     if ProjName.FormName.chkValue = True then

ANY help will be greatly appreciated...

One method I can think of......................
use the registry to store the variable. There would be a PAQ which tells you how

kmarf,
you could also use objects with certain properties for storing the value  and use DCom or remote automation to communicate between the two projects

I'd really rather avoid going outside VB itself - sorry I didn't specify.

Ajoy - could you elaborate a little on CDom & rem auto?  

I guess this means there's no straight passing between vbp's huh?

Dcom and remote automation are  supported by VB and it is very simple to use. For more details on how to implement Dcom and remote auto in VB refer to the following books
1.Inside Dcom programming (Wrox publishers)
2.Business objects.(")

Situation is, I'm not a full-time programmer (would be if I got the time...).  I'm patching up a program somebody else bailed on, and he never accounted for this aspect of it.

I was hoping for code...syntax...  VB's online books has nothing regarding Dcom.  
Is what I want to do supported normally in VB or does anyone haave a workaround is what I'm asking.
