I have four forms in VB 6.  I have radio buttons on each and a continue button as well.  I am looking to know how to make each radio button on the form go to one of the other three forms.  I guess this may be a coding question.  Thank you in advance for your assistance.

What do you mean, make it "go to one of the other three forms".  Do you want the other form to be able to know what you selected?  Or make it decide which form to show next, depending on what you selected?

Do you want them to select something, then click the continue button to proceed?  If so, then you should do something like this:

First create a Frame object to put your radio buttons in (this will make it so only one of the radio buttons can be selected at a time).  Then draw your radio buttons INSIDE of the frame.

Now just put some code similar to this to tell it what to do depending on which option is selected:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Me.Hide  'hides the current form

    If Option1.Value = True Then Form1.Show
    If Option2.Value = True Then Form2.Show
    If Option3.Value = True Then Form3.Show
End Sub

I am so new to this I must ask.  Where you have "Command1" in the code, is that what it should say or should it read what I actually have on the button?  The same question with Option1 and Form1.  Thank you again for any assistance.

It doesn't have to say that, just assume you insert whatever you name the button you create, wherever I put "Command1".  Usually you give it a name that has something to do with it's function, since you want it to be called "continue", it would likely be named "cmdContinue" (the cmd is because it's a command button).

You can do the same thing with the option buttons and the forms.  Option button names usually begin with "opt" and form names with "frm".

Let me make sure I have this then, please.  I have three forms named Form1, Form2 and Form3.  On Form1 I have two radio buttons that are labeled A and B.  I also have a command button named Next.  I want to be able to select either radio button and hit Next to go to one or the other.  Is this the proper code below?

Private Sub cmdNext_Click()
    Me.Hide "hides the current form

    If optA.Value = True Then Form2.Show
    If optB.Value = True Then Form3.Show
End Sub
