See the code below.  I want to enter into the sub with the name of the form as a string.  I will need to refer to that form directly later.   I wish to do this by using syntax similar to  what the code below.

I would appreciate help in fixing that code.


Public Sub CheckDuplicates(ByVal FormName As String, ByRef lblCommunicate As Label)
    Dim TheForm As Form: Set TheForm = Forms(FormName)
