I have two forms: TimeSheet form and Client Search form.
In Client Search form I have three list boxes: Family Name, Client Name, and ClientCode.

When I click on SELECT button on Client Search form I want to input selected data in three list boxes listed above and insert that data in TimeSheetForm data grid that is bounded to a TimeSheetDataSet dataSource that has a table with columns 'FamilyName', 'ClientName', and 'ClientCode'.  

How do I transfer data from ClientSearch form and insert values on the appropriate data grid fields in TimeSheet form.

Thank you in advance,

Zorica

U can set a property in the ClientSearch form that can be used to access the data

In ClientSearch Form say u have a information in the form of three datatables. Insert these datatables into a dataset.

dataset1.Tables["FamilyName"]
dataset1.Tables["ClientName"]
dataset1.Tables["ClientCode"]

Then store the dataset as a property in ClientSearch form

Public Property Prop1() As Dataset
      Get
        return dataset1
     End Get
   Set(ByVal Value As String)
               dataset1= Value
      End Set
     End Property

This property can be accessed by the TimeSheet form

Dim clientFrm as ClientSearchForm
clientFrm = new ClientSearchForm

Dim dataset2 as new Dataset
dataset2 = clientFrm.Prop1

U can extract the datatables from this dataset
