the subroutine needs to be public and you call it this way:

FormName.SubRoutineName
0

In the form which has the subroutine you want to call ensure that the subroutine is Public.  

eg.
Public Hello()
  MsgBox "Hello World"
End Sub

For sake of arguement also call this form "FormWithRoutine"

In the form you are calling from type the name of the Form with the subroutine, type a period, and the specify the name of the Routine you which to call.  In the example given above it would be:

FormWithRoutine.Hello
0

another newbie!!!

carlosferreira, your post is not an answer. You can read at the bottom of this screen :

An answer is a specific solution to a question and should be submitted if it will solve the questioner's problem and doesn't duplicate a previous comment. "

Also, you made a mistake. It should be read: Public SUB Hello()
