Hi,

Have converted over an application from Access to vb6 to Vb.net

In the upgrade from vb6 to Vb.net, the conversion tool created a property called "DefInstance".

This is used to reference a control in a form from outwith that form. (e.g. A Code Module)

Am getting issues with this DefInstance in Form initialization.

Does anybody know a way around using "DefInstance"

Thanks.

In VB6, forms were easily accessed as shared members (i.e. Form1.TextBox1).  In VB.NET, you need an instance of a variable in order to reference something on a form:

Dim frm As New Form1
frm.TextBox1

The DefInstance is the migration wizard's answer to overcoming this switch in paradigm.  You could remove it, but you would need something similar in its place.
