Cannot remember how to open a form from the current form, obtain data from a field in that form, and place it in a field in the current form.  A basic question but I really need an answer.

( where frmOther is the form to open)

From Current form:
Dim x as form

Set x = new frmOther

me.txtField.text = x.txtField.text


txtField is supposed to be a textbox in each form.

Hope that helps your memory :)
