In, I have a procedure declaration ...

        Private Sub SetSqlDataAdapter(ByRef da As SqlDataAdapter, strTableName As String)

And a call to it ...

        dap1 = New SqlDataAdapter(cmd1)
        Call SetSqlDataAdapter(dap1, "Returns")

dap1 is declared globally in the Form Class  ...

        Dim dap1 As New SqlDataAdapter

Why am I getting the exception "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" on the line that calls the procedure?
