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.

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
