Call Method in 1 form from another form

I thought this would be relatively simple but I am stuck at the moment. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a form with a grid in it. If I double click an item in the grid I would like to:

1. Check if the form is already open
2. If open  then it should call a method(Get_Sub_To_Edit) on that form
3. If closed it should open the form(subDataEntry) and call a method(Get_Sub_To_Edit) on that form.

My form subDataEntry may or may not be opened by my form so I cannot pass across this form to the subDataEntry form.

    private void grdSubs_CellDoubleClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
        {

            int row = grdExceptions.CurrentRow.Index;
            int id = Convert.ToInt32(grdSubs["subid", row].Value.ToString().Trim());

            bool formisopen = false;

            foreach (Form OpenForm in Application.OpenForms)
            {
                if (OpenForm.GetType() == typeof(subDataEntry))
                {

                    OpenForm.Select();
                    OpenForm.Get_Sub_To_Edit(id); // Does not work. Method is unavailable
                    formisopen = true;
                }
            }

            if (formisopen == false)
            {
                subDataEntry myform = new subDataEntry();
                myform.MdiParent = this.MdiParent;
                myform.Get_Sub_To_Edit(id);
                myform.Show();

            }


        }

You need to CAST the form to the correct type.

Change:

    OpenForm.Get_Sub_To_Edit(id);

To:

    ((subDataEntry)OpenForm).Get_Sub_To_Edit(id);
