I have a VB.NET 2008 solution that has multiple projects in it.  I need to be able to call a sub that resides in Project A from Project B.  I also need to be able to pass a string to that sub in Project A when I call it from Project B.

Is this possible?  Hopefully it makes sense.  Thanks for the suggestions.

What types of projects are these ?
Usually you would just add a reference to project B from Project A.
Then you would call the sub in thee same way as function but adding the project name and possibly class name infrom of the function/subname i.e.

projectb.classa.suba()

you can obviously pass parameters into this function call in the same way as for a normal function call.

In project B when i type projecta.form1. it does not list the subs.
