Hi Experts,

I have a piece of code that load up a form: -

frmCreatePurchaseOrder.show()

when I run it I get the following error message: -

System.InvalidOperationException was unhandled
  Message="An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details.  The error is: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

What does this mean please and how can I find out whats causing it.

Many Thanks
Lee

Ummm... more to the point... frmCreatePurchaseOrder is probably set to nothing.

Try:
Dim frm as new frmCreatePurchaseOrder
frm.Show()
