Okay, I have two VB 6.0 forms.  When I click on a menu item I want to close one and open the other.  How do I do this?
The first form's name is Form1 and the second form's name is Form2.  The menu item's name is mnuFileOpen.

Private Sub mnuFileOpen_Click()
Unload Form1
Form2.Show
End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

In mnuFileOpen_Click, use code like this:

' If you want to be able to go back to the first form quickly,
'   use the .Hide, otherwise use Unload
'
'Form1.Hide
Unload Form1

Form2.Show   ' loads Form2 if not already loaded

----------------------

Note:
  If you want mnuFileOpen to toggle between the two forms, you can use code like this:

If Form1.Enabled And Form1.Visible Then
  Unload Form1
  Form2.Show
Else   ' assumes one form or the other is shown
  Unload Form2
  Form1.Show
End If
