My VB4 programme has abot 12 forms and a module. when I run the programme it starts with a certain form I dont know how the start form was determined but i want to start with a different form and i dont knowhow to change it. Also when i move from one form to a new one i use "form1a.hide form2b.show" is this the best/only way

Calm down.
In the VB Menu, select Tools/Options.
From the Options screen, select the Project tab.
Select the Form you want from Startup Form list.

By the way, in answer to your second question.  This isn't the only way but if it works, it's good.
Usually you will just open a new screen without closing the old screen.
