Private Declare Function SetMenu Lib "user32" Alias "SetMenu" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hMenu As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetMenu Lib "user32" Alias "GetMenu" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long


then:

Dim frm As Form

For Each frm In Forms
  SetMenu frm.hWnd, GetMenu(FormWithMenu.hWnd)
Next frm

hope this helps!

I'd say to use an MDIForm. Put the menu on it and make all the forms with that menu MDIChildren.
-or-
If the forms are shown only one at a time, you can use frames on a single form to contain the controls. This way, you'd have one form, one set of menus and you can just use show the frame you wish to show and hide the others.

Essentially, a project equals an app. If you split the forms to different projects, you'll end up with them in different apps.
