scope of declaration

I have declared a hashtable to use with the form like this:

********************
Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

   dim htCarrierIndex As New Hashtable()
********************

Okay, so during form_load I populate the hashtable, and it works fine.
Like: MsgBox(htCarrierIndex(0)) returns the value at the 0 key.  Great.

But after form_load, it doesn't work anymore.
MsgBox(Form1.htCarrierIndex(0)) gives me no value.  I've tried dim, public, shared.  What gives?

Thanks in advance.

maybe it's NOT fine--

******************************
For j = 0 To datatable.Rows.Count - 1
            result = datatable.Rows(j)
            'adding cboindex, carrierindex as key/value pair
            htCarrierIndex.Add(j, "hello")
            'htCarrierIndex.Add(j, result(0))
            cboCarrier.Items.Add(result(1))
            MsgBox(htCarrierIndex(0))

           
        Next
        MsgBox(htCarrierIndex(0))
**************************

during the loop, the msgbox displays the value.  outside the loop (the second msgbox) no value is displayed.  very confusing
