Multi-Form Variable

I have a testing program with mutiple Forms and I want to use a variable to record what the tester receves as a score. For example,  in the begining of the program, A = 50. If the tester gets one wrong, A = A - 1. The problem is that A will not retain its value form to form.  I know now that I must put the variable in a Module. I have never used a Module before. How do I do This?

go to the menu project and choose "add a module"
in this new module, add this line :
global xxx as integer
where xxx is your variable name.

this variable will be accessible on all the project and it will retain his value.

You can place the variable into a Module(.bas) file. With scope Public It will retain the value on all for all project

It doesn't have to be a module it can be your standard form. Just in General Declaration place Public x as Integer or in Module Place Public x as Integer.
You can use this variable then thoughout your code.
