If FormA if startup form, then you can write Me.Close() or End in FormA to close all forms.

formA is not a startup form nor a parent

>Ive got a formA that has a button that fires another form
that means that formA is the "parent" of the other one...
I guess a confusion of terms here.

As formA fires the other form, it should have/retain that form's reference. and using that, it can close it also at any time.
