If the variable is global you should be able to say just that. To declare it globally you just use the following;

Global Variable1 as Integer

I have that much, but I need to set the value of Variable1 to 25 in this example. How do I set the value?

If the value is constant available to all forms then

Public Const Variable1 As Long = 25

_____________________________

if it is a true Public variable then
Public Variable1 As Long

Then enter the value 25 in an appropriate place i.e.

sub Main()
Variable1 = 25
end sub

Oh yeah! The SubMain() was what I was looking for. Thanks!
