Well you cannot use access forms in VB.
Access provides both back-end (tables, queries) and front-end (forms, reports)
When you create a program using VB you are programming the front end that is replacing Access front end and use Access as an back-end only.
So you pretty much going to manually copy all the controls and logic from Access forms into VB forms.
