I cant get the other forms to show in a prog with the frm.show thing, It says Object required...and then the prog closes...I was wondering if you could help me...I heard I might need to make a DLL file, or get one.

If your command is

   frm.show

"frm" should be a valid form or even a variable used as following :

   Dim frm     as New Form

   Set frm = frmMainWindow

   frm.Show

You have to use .Shoe on a form that exists, like if you have a form named form2, use form2.Show
anything else will generate an error
