Simple Question about variables (Public)

I am trying to allow my two forms to read from each toerh and in future from other forms,
Everyone says to place
    Public UName As String
But this doesnt allow my other form to read the variable value
There may be something wrong within the rest of my code so I will place it here,
This is the sign up form which will eventually send the information to my database when I have enough knowledge to do that (not a request for help)

Private Sub cmdSubmitDetails_Click()
    Dim msgbox_1Submit                       'This is the button they click on after they have inputed their details
    msgbox_1Submit = MsgBox("Is this information correct?", 4, "Validation")
    Select Case msgbox_1Submit
    Case 7
    MsgBox "Please make the changes and then Select 'Submit'."
    Case 6
    Public UName As String                    'These are in the
    Public UAge As Integer                     'General declerations
    Public UCountry As String                 'Like i was told to do
    UName = txtEnterName.Text
    UAge = txtEnterAge.Text
    UCountry = txtEnterCountry.Text
    MsgBox "Successfully Submitted"
    MsgBox "Welcome " & UName & " who is " & UAge & " and lives in " & UCountry
    frmMain.Visible = True                     'Loads next form
    frmSubmitNew.Visible = False           'Gets rid of old form
    End Select
End Sub

The next form only has the one line for the moment.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    lblWelcome.Caption = "Hello " & UName & "."
End Sub

Help would be very much appreciated,
Thank you
Adam ;)

Put the Public declarations in the Declarations section of the form.

It's to be a good habit to define your public variable in module:

In a module:

    Public UName As String                    'These are in the
    Public UAge As Integer                     'General declerations
    Public UCountry As String

Dim, Public and Const are not executable, so there is no point in putting them in conditional parts of the procedure.

Hi,
As ryancys its a good practice to have the public variables in the module, If u dont want to add a module then declare the public variables in the general section.
When u go to the second form access the variable as FormName.VariableName, though it is not compulsory to do so, it is always a best practice to do this way.

Good Luck !!!
