Hi
Exit sub - means thath if say you have a procedure or a value thath is reached and you want the execution of your sub routine to stop and not carry on . form still stays open

end sub - means thath the code in a sub routine has all been executed and that object is now finnished

Example - Exit sub
say u put in a validatioon on a field like this
Private sub Field1_lostfocus()
   the value in field1 is either null or a value u are not happy with
i use exit sub like this
if field1 = "" then
   field1.setfocus
   exit sub
end if

or in an error handler you will use exit sub often cause say the user has not filled in correct info so you do not want your app to bom so place an exit sub to prevent it and force the user back to were he should go or give them an message box or something

hope it helps

like you said Craig, if i use exit sub, this mean the form will not get closed ? then will it be danger if i replace the exit sub with "unload me" ? coz i just have an exprience yesterday that the program didn't get terminate althought the last form got unloaded. and that was happended during the development.

Well friend u can try that, so so u want to close that form automatically ?
if so i would make a safer rout in thath not firectly replace exit sub with unload me . What i would do is create an small sub routine say called exitform. I would replace your exit sub with
call exitform
in exit form i would then call unload me

try that
ps.if u still have problems or unsure mail me the piece of code and i will look at it for you clazar@softnet.co.za
good luck
Craig
