i havent tested this but it should work declare the functions globally so instead of calling
somefunction();
you can call
tform1.somefunction();

example:

  private
    function1(s : string);
    function2(t : tdatetime);  
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

function TForm1.function1(s : string);string;
begin
showmessage(s);
end;

function TForm1.function2(t:string);string;
begin
showmessage(t);
tform1.function2('here is function1 called in function2');
end;

if it dont work pates your 2 functions here  so we can look at.

erm please ignore above code it is gibberish(real bad)

here is a tested example of what i mean:
   
   
unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    function function1(s : string):string;
    function function2(t : string):string;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

function TForm1.function1(s : string):string;
begin
showmessage(s);
end;

function TForm1.function2(t : string):string;
begin
showmessage(t);
function1('here is function1 in function2');
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
Function2('function2');
end;

end.

oh i didnt see your posting.

what is this?

MatchedWindow:=TForm1.FindWindowThatContainSubString(AOWindows,'Welcome'); <-- Thay gives me the error undeclared indentifier...help!

that tells me nothing..
have you made this function yourself?
is it delared globally?
if so i would need see your full function to understand the error.
and show you where to put the code in your unit.
i presume your calling it on a button click or something ..?
please take a look at the second posting of mine and i think you will see what to do.

well i guess it is procedure your using not function but it is same principal..
 
this will work if you declare globally :
your procedure and a boolean var.

private
    { Private declarations }
procedure FindWindowThatContainSubString
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  MatchedWindow : Boolean;

implementation

procedure FindWindowThatContainSubString(blah,blah);
begin
blah blah
end;

procedure Tform1.Button1Click(sender : tobject);
begin
MatchedWindow:=FindWindowThatContainSubString(AOWindows,'Welcome');  
end;
