Hey Experts -

Can someone explain to me why I can't open a form using form.show?  That is the correct call to open a form from within a sub routine, isn't it?  When I try and use this command it says that "reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference."  Please help.

Yea .NET is an objected Oriented structure and your dealing with strict objects. You must intantiate the form then use the .show or .showdialog
