Consolidating Multiple Windows Forms into One Form

I'm an ASP.NET developer trying to put together a VB.NET Win App.  I've completed the business functionality of this basic application by creating 4 Forms.  frmMenu is my Menu.  frmDG shows a Datagrid.  The other two forms are for data input.  When you click on a button from frmMenu, I open one of the other windows.  

Dim DG As New frmDG
DG.Show()

This works fine, but I don't want to open a second form.  I want to re-work the application so everything loads on frmMenu.  Menu Items on the far LEFT of the Form and the Datagrid or Entry Items will load in the center of the Form --based on the item clicked from the Menu.

It seems my question is too basic for Win Apps that I can't find much out there on the topic.  Can someone point me in the right direction?  Thanks.

Sounds like a good candidate for MDI forms.
