I have an MDI application, and when I try to reference objects through the MDI Parent (i.e. frmMain.ActiveForm.Caption = "Test"), or try to call public functions declared in the MDI from (i.e. Call frmMDI.Test_Func), I get the error message "Only one MDI from allowed".  Where am I going wrong?

try Screen.activeForm.caption = "test"

As for the other problem with the declared functions... put them in a module and call them from there... simpler

Thanks for the help.  I didn't know about the Screen object.  I orignally had all the functions in a module, but then they weren't operating on the dynamic MDI Child forms, so I moved them to the form, and I couldn't call a function.  Anyway, thanks for the help. I got everything straightened out.
