Simple Visual Basic How To

Hi,

I have an application that will have 3 forms plus the main application.

The main application will have a file menu

The file menu will contain:
Add Record
Search Record
Print Record

When the main application opens, the user will be prompted to enter a filename to open via StreamReader and will have an input box.

What is the best way store that file name in a variable so when I click file so I can open another form, I will be adding a record to that file, or searching. So where can I store that file name?

ALSO: How can I copy a form and It's code to another application?
