I have this in a module:
-----------
Public Sub Open_Next_Form(thisformname, nextformname)

MsgBox thisformname
MsgBox nextformname

GlobalCustomerID = thisformname.ID
thisformname.Form.refresh
DoCmd.OpenForm nextformname

End Sub
--------------


I call it this way:
-----------------
    Private Sub btnConsumerDebt_Click()

MsgBox Form.Name

nextformname = frmDebtsConsumer
Call Open_Next_Form(Me.Form, nextformname)


'GlobalCustomerID = ID
'Form.refresh
'DoCmd.OpenForm "frmDebtsConsumer"


End Sub
------------------

When I click this button I get a Type Mismatch at "msgbox thisformname"

When I comment out the msgboxes, I get:

"runtime error 2494: The action or method requires a form name argument"
at
DoCmd.OpenForm nextformname


Thanks.

Try revising the sub to define the paramters as Form and string::

Public Sub Open_Next_Form(thisformname as Form, nextformname as String)

MsgBox thisformname.Name
MsgBox nextformname

GlobalCustomerID = thisformname.ID
thisformname.Form.refresh
DoCmd.OpenForm nextformname

End Sub


Then call it like this:

nextformname = "frmDebtsConsumer"    '*** nextformname should be Dimmed as string.
Call Open_Next_Form(Me, nextformname)

thanks, this worked!  I am new to VBA and really appreciate this help.  I am to build a database for a client.  When I originally estimated how much time it would take me, I didn't realise that some of the functionality would necessitate coding.  I'll probably be posting more here.  

thanks again, mbizup.
