Would anybody know how to output the contents of a Linked list onto a different MDI Child form (Not open Yet).
Also do you know how to open a form for use and make it invisible when There are No instances of another Child form.

There are two details which I need to print on the one line:  Err Number and Err Description.

Any help is very much appreciated!! Cheers.

Well, this is a vague question, so I'll answer it as best I can...

1) Place a memo on to the form, step through the list and output it to the text box

(assuming you are not using the STL ... )

memo1->Lines->Clear();
for (l = head_of_list; l; l = l->next)
   memo1->Lines->Append(l->text);

2) Set the Visible attrribute to false (Visible = false) and the form will
go away

form1->Visible = false;

3)

AnsiString s = AnseiString((int) ErrNumber) + ":" + ErrDescription;

then output s where and when you want to
