From the Menu:
File/Save Form As...

Browse to Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Template\Forms    (this tree is under your Program Files folder in a standard VB installation)

Save the form.

The low-tech solution is to use Visual Component Manager and check it in, or just save the .frm to a location separate from any specific project.

Hope this helps.

I worked that much out... however... rightclick on the "project", "add form" menu.  The saved form is nowhere to be seen.

how silly is that... I saved my form to a previous version of Visual Basic\Templates\Forms.  Thanks for help.
