Running a Form From Visual Basic

I have a program with two forms in it. The first form will ask for a password. The second form will be the actual program. How do I get the second form (actual program) to run after someone clicks the OK button on the password form. Form2.Show doesn't seem to work. (duh) Make this easy on me as I'm just another lame-o in the crowd.
Thanks

Just code in the first form
Private function cmdOk_click()
           if text1.text = password then
             form2.show
          else
            msgbox "Invalid password.Try again!"
            text1.setfocus
          end if
end function

Chaulk,
   The code that you suggested is what i have now. It will not run the form though. Here is the code that I have now:
Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
 Dim OldPswd As String
   Dim FName As String
   Dim DefaultPassword
   Dim Msg, Style, Title, Help, Ctxt, Response, MyString
   FName = "c:\windows\pass.pas"
   Open FName For Input As #1   ' Open file.
   Line Input #1, OldPswd
   Close #1

   If txtPassword.Text = OldPswd Then
        OK = True
        Form1.Show
End
       
    Else
       
       MsgBox "Please Enter Correct Password"
        txtPassword.SetFocus
        txtPassword.SelStart = 0
        txtPassword.SelLength = Len(txtPassword.Text)
       
    End If

End Sub

Note: Form2 is my password form. Form1 is the Actual Program.
Please submit any ideas on this to me.
Thanks

if the END statment after Form1.Show is in your code, you have to remove it, you can use UNLOAD ME to hid the logon form.

That did the trick. I did leave out unload me. Girsu, you caught my mistake and Chualk, you had the right idea too. I will give Chualk the points. I will also give Girsu points.
Girsu, Look for:"This Points To Girsu ONLY"
Thanks Again
