I have a start Form that has a button on it that will open up another form.

The code that is on this button that opens the second form is below.  This code works perfect.  My question is I need this button to ask the user a question after it has been clicked and place the users typed answer into a text field on the new form that it is opening.

It need to ask… “what Is todays letter”  and the user will type in l or g or z .. (a letter) any ways.. how can I ask this question after clicking the button and placing this result in “text24” of the new form that is being opened?

Thanks
