How to activate the command to  the main form from other form?
example: My Main form is mainfrm then the other form is form1.
in mainfrm i have a code like this
Public sub kick()
msgbox "hello"
end sub
now i go to form1, then i want to activate kick upon downloading the form1. here's my command

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Unload me
End Sub

My code is not working.
Please give some example to do this?

You need to call mainfrm.kick as below

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Unload me
End Sub

To call any function directly it should be in module instead of form.

Also, you're having form1 unload itself and then continuing to run code from within that form's module. Strictly speaking the unload command should be very the last thing it does. You'd get away with it in this instance but any significant amount of code following the unload command may prevent the form from unloading. This is the better way to do it:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Unload Me
End Sub
