yes... use a module and declare your variables as public from within it.

Simple way:
Add to your Form1 declarations:
Public CustName As String
Public Points As Long
Public UpdForm As Form

Then you can use:
Form1.CustName="Simon"
Form1.Points=50
Set Form1.UpdForm=FormCU1
Form1.UpdForm.Show

---
Better way is to use Property Get/Let pair of procedures (or Get/Set)
Private m_CustName As String ' declarations

Public Property Get CustName() As String
    CustName=m_CustName
End Property

Public Property Let CustName(ByVal vNewValue As String)
    m_CustName=vNewValue
    Caption = "Customer: " & m_CustName
End Property

in a module add this line
public x as integer

in any other code you can give x a value and all x's will have that value because now x is the same variable in all of you subs and functions
