Visual Basic question

Alright, so I recently started playing around with Visual Basic. What I am hoping to do is create a form that'll write something to a file. Then, you need to open another form which will also write something to that file. The problem is the first form allows the person to specify the filename, so I need the second form to reference from the first form.
Is there a way to do it? Or am I SOL and need to find another way to do it?

Well, if I understand correctly, you just need the second form to reference the filename the user chose in the first form. I don't have any VB docs here to tell you exactly how to do it, but I think you should be able to do what you want using a global variable to store the filename.

Can I ask what this program is?

I'm not sure why you'd have a second form to write to the file - that code would simply execute after the user input form.

As Spanky mentioned, the filename would be stored in a variable and can referenced that way - second form or not.

The program is for my mud. What it is going to do is allow a builder for my mud to build an area that will allow them to know every variable that needs to be filled in. I can't fit every variable into one form as I'd have a quite large form. What the second form is doing is writing all of the variables for a npc in the mud, then another form is going to create objects and write them to the file.
I suppose though if I need to, I could force everything to save to the one certain file, but I don't really wanna do it that way...

If the first form that takes the filename is named "form1", and it has a textbox that accepts the filename, then try the following from the second form:

Dim filename as string
form1.txtFilename.text = filename

The first form will still need to be loaded. If it isn't, you'll need to pass it as a variable somewhere.
