Declaring Form Objects

Question:
If i declare a new form as an object variable,
Dim NewForm as Form
set NewForm=form2
NewForm.Show
Once I have a one of those forms, how do refer to that particular instance of the form in the code? NewForm and form2 produce a syntax error.

Answer:
Let's say that fRealForm is actually a form in your project. If you do:

Dim NewForm as New fRealForm
NewForm.Show
That will work, and show fRealForm. If you call the two lines again, it will create a new instance of that form. You will probably run into trouble just dimming things as Form. It doesn't work very well for object variables...it works ok for passing parameters.
