Forms are really just objects, and can be passed as parameters on your function call.  You can pass them as a form type, or as a type of Object, then your forms methods and properties are available to the function.  Your controls as well can be passed to functions in this manner.  All of these objects have windows handles, and are each uniquely identified by their hWnd (long integer handle).  That's all that really gets passed to the function.  At that point it has a Windows reference back into the object, via the passed handle.

Incidentally, to genralize your code even more, consider passing resultset/recordsets as well.  They work too.
