I have a form that can be opened via a command button from four other forms.  When the 2nd form opens I want a date field to automatically populate from a date field that is in the 1st form.

But since this date field on the 2nd form can be opened from any one of 4 forms, I am not sure how to populate the date field,  Somehow the 2nd form has to know which of the 4 forms is open and use the date field from that form.
