Are you trying to pass a reference to your form so it can be used by another module?

public sub SetFormTo(myForm as Form)
    Dim frm as Form
    Set frm = myForm
End Sub
Depending on what you want to do with it, you could also do something like this...

The command1 is a button on a form named form1.  Text1 is a text box on form1.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
set_Form Me
End Sub

Public Sub set_Form(frm As Form1)
frm.Text1 = "Hi There!"
End Sub
public sub setformto(frmname as string)
     dim frm as form
     For Each f In Forms
          if (f.Name = frmName) then
               set frm=f
               Exit for
          End if
end sub

Good Luck!
