Passing variables from forms to forms

Would you please tell me how to pass variables from forms to forms? Is that we can use the Tabs in general or use pass by reference? Thanks!

Since you're using Version 3.0 of Visual Basic, the only way to access the same variable from two different places is through the use of a global variable. To declare a variable, do the following:

  1. Add a code module to your project. A code module is one that ends in .BAS.
  2. In the declarations section of that code module, declare your variable with the Global keyword, as shown here:
    Global foo as Integer
    That will create a variable named foo that can be accessed from any form or code module.
