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?

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

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.

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.
