If you use the Forms collection you can do this:

On Error Resume Next
Open "MyFile" For Output As #1
For Each MyForm In Forms
  Print MyForm.Text1.Text
Next

This is just the simplest version, you should add some additional verification in case you have other forms which do not have the same control. In this way you would also write the value for the activeform so you could do away with that part of your code.

Hi,

When quit the program:

Do while <ActiveForm is not nothing>
   <Save value to your file>
   <Close the current form>
loop

In the form tht has the textbox add a Property that indicates that the contents of the box have changed.

In the unload event of the form add code to prompt the user to save the modified information.

This way you will always get a prompt when ever the user changes anything on anyform.

So if the user changes the values of windows 1,2, & 4. The user will be prompt 3 times to save the information.
