Drop on a MDI Child Form in VB 2008

I have a Windows application in VS 2008.

I want to drop some files (from Outlook 200&) on my form. This form is a MDI child form. When I drop some files on this form the Event 'DragEnter' on the parentform is Fired. How can I solve this problem?

I think that can work, but I don't know how at this moment.
Please, can you give me a short example?

No, that part of my code works fine. I am only looking for the solution of the child / parent problem.

It works now!

I added the following code to the dragdrop handler of the parent:

 Dim f As myForm

        If (Me.ActiveMdiChild.Name = "myForm") Then
            f = Me.ActiveMdiChild
            f.sbDragDrop(sender, e)
        End If

sbDragDrop is a public handler of myForm
