rolee,

  Just declare your database variable as Public in a BAS module file. Then using this database variable in all your form. And remember to close and release the database when your application end.

----- ' code in BAS module
       ' If you are using DAO
Public db As Database

      ' Or if you are using RDO
Public rd As RDOConnection

------

Regards.
