After you create the first child form, you can do:

'assuming the child form name is Form1

Dim myForm As Form1
Set myForm = New Form1
myForm.Show

hi User501.

yes u can have multiple instances of the same form using
the above code as givn by Shauli...

but when u say with different varaibles..what exactly u mean..

if u mean that the variables should store separate values for all instances.. then yes they will..

and if u mean u want to run different code depending on the instance or value passed while opening a form...then for that u can take a variable say OpenArgs.. depending on the value of this variable u can call ur code..

like
frm.OpenArgs = "1"
frm.show
in the form load of form1 wriet the following code

Select case OpenArgs
 case "1": 'do something
 Case "2"" Do Something
and so on..
end select

Remember that once you are finished with the form you need to free the memory that it was using.
ie Set myform = nothing.
