Did you try this? :

Private Sub cmdPoste_Click()
    DoCmd.OpenForm "Form2"
End Sub

Open in new window

Double click the button on your form to show the code view. You should enter the following code

Dim frm as new Form2
frm.Show

Open in new window

Forms do not come automatically in VB now. You need to create a variable in order to use a form.

I suggest that you get use to that way of working, because it gives lot a better control of what is happening in the application.

If you are in a rush of simply an amateur programmer however, you can work as you did before by using the following syntax:

My.Forms.Form2.Show
My.Forms.FormAnything.Show
My.Forms.FormAnother.Show

Dim myvariable as new Myform()

myvariable.show()
or
myvariable.showdialog() "for modal open"
