You've got your form as a modal form (form.show vbModal)
In that form, you want to display another messagebox ...

That's not allowed by Windows.


You must either show your form not modal and then popup the messagebox.

But, I guess that you put it modal to ensure that the user clicks one of the buttons on the form ....
You'll have to check that off with a global variable (that is changed when the user clicks one of the buttons) and you can put your form "always on top" to simulate the modal effect.  There's enough code on this site on how to display a form always on top.

run time error 401 -- cant show non-modal form while a modal form is display

with no modal forms, this is a curious run time error.
