The code you actually typed, is not possible in VB.
VB does not support MACRO expansion (as it used to be in the late Clipper and other languages)
Actually you can't use a variable in another variable's name :-(

What you CAN do to solve your current problem is to cycle through the Forms collection at runtime and check the Form.Name property to match your criteria :

for i = 0 to (Forms.Count - 1)

  If Forms(i).Name = ("Form" & CStr(i)) Then
     Form(i).Refresh
  End If
next


This will work perfectly....

Hope this helps ya out !

This is not really an answer to your general question, but you could use the forms collection to achieve what you are trying to do in the example :

Dim frmTemp as form

For Each frmTemp in Forms
    frmTemp.Refresh
Next frmTemp

Hope that helps.
