I would like to create all the database connections on the parent forms onload event, and then be able to access all the datasets thus generated by all the children forms (or most of them anyway).

What is the most efficient and most elegant way of sharing datasets across multiple forms?

across multiple forms, youll want to create the variables in a startup module.

if you are not familiar, all you need to do is create a module with a Sub Main() call, and goto Project -> Properties and then select Sub Main() as your startup object.

for a good procedure to follow concerning starting from a module, check out RonaldBiemans answer to this question.

after you have that, simply declare the variable public at the top of the module.  

youll now have access to it from any form you create.
