Hi,

I've busted my but on this to no avail.

I want to put a form in an activeX and call it.

Should I create a dll or ocx? if a dll, how do I load it in my program?

Create a project of type ActiveX Dll (myProject).  Include a class (myClass) with a Public Sub (mySub).  Set the INstancing property of myClass to '5-multiuse'.  Add a form to the project.  In mySub put the code to show the form.  

Add another project (CallingProject) to the project group, this time of type Standard EXE.  Add a reference to myProject.  Somewhere in CallingProject, do something like this

dim o as myProject.myClass
set o = new myClass
o.MySub

Yes I agree with dancebert. You could actually build the complete module (this is just for understanding purpose) and add as many form as you want. Just create the instance of the class (DLL) in the calling program and call the functions. Each function in DLL will perform some operations ( may be some calculations or loading a user interface).
