Normally, I'd say try to qualify it with fraFrame1(0).Text1.Text, fraFrame1(1).Text1.Text etc.  but I really doubt that you can have two textboxes on the same FORM with the same name, even if they are one different frames without creating a control array of the textboxes too.  If this is the case, then just use the index for the textbox, as I don't think that you could qualify them with the Frame name as coded above.

I'm not sure what you mean by "you want to access the same textbox from different frame".  If a textbox sits on a frame or not on a frame or on a different frame, it doesn't matter in the code.  As long as all textboxes and frames and whatever are all in the same Form (window).  All of you code is being coded in the Form's code section.  So, if you want to refer to text1 or text2 in the code in the form, all you have to do is say:

Text1.Text = "Hello"
Text2.Text = "World"

Now, if by "frame" you actually mean "Form" (window), then you do need to qualify the name of the textbox like this:

(say that this code is inside of Form2)

Form1.Text1.Text = "Hello"
Form1.Text2.Text = "World"

A "Frame" is the name of the panel or container that people use to group related controls.  It usually has a square border and a caption at the top.  If this is not what you mean by "frame" let us know.
