Cancel Button

I can currently access form "A" through form "B" or form "C".  I have a cancel button on form "A" which when clicked I would like it to return me to the form that I was using previously.  How can I code this cancel button to take me to the form I was previously on before going to form "A".  Any help would be appreciated.

 P.S.  I am using form show - form hide to do this.

In a MODULE put a global variable to hold the previous form as:

Public PrevFrm as Form

Then in the main form code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Debug.Print PrevFrm.Name
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Deactivate()
    Set PrevFrm = Me
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Set PrevFrm = Me
End Sub

And in each of the other forms use:

Private Sub Form_Deactivate()
    Set PrevFrm = Me
End Sub
