Form tags

Okay. I have a MDI parent form. It calls a child form. I am setting the tag property of the child form from the parent to equal a value. Then I open the child form and try to read that value that I set in the tag property of the child form. The value does not show up. What is happening here.? Sometime I get an error about cant have no more than one MDI form. Need some help pronto!!

Try this:

Option Explicit

Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
    Form1.Show 'MDI Child form
    NewForm "Form2"
    NewForm "Form3"
End Sub

Private Sub NewForm(ByVal ID As String)
    Dim f As Form
    Set f = New Form1
    f.Caption = ID
    f.Tag = ID
End Sub

Thanks. Hiding the form then showing the other that the tag is/was being passed to. Elementary huh :) Thanks
