How do I access data in a field in a form and place it in the current form?

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you mean:


( 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 :)
