    pass value from one form to another

    Hi,
    I need to pass value from a textbox on form1 to another textbox on form 2 on button click event.How do I do this?
    I have read about code like Form2.txtnew.text = me.text1.text for this purpose, on some other forum. But it does not work for me.Maybe I am writing the code on the wrong event.
    Please help me. Thank you.

    Still does not work.
    Can you please help me with the basics.
    My form1 has an invoice number field and i have a button to add an item. When the button is clicked it opens form2 wherein you fill more details but the invoice number from the first form is also displayed.
    The code you have mentioned goes on the _click event,right?And is there any other piece of code that goes along with this?
    I am sorry but i am pretty new at access.
    Thanks a lot for your help.

    It would go in the click event, after opening the other form, like:

    DoCmd.OpenForm "SecondFormName"
    Forms!SecondFormName.TextboxName = Me.TextboxName

    If you're still having trouble, perhaps you can post your db?

    You can't; you could also use OpenArgs, but either way the form needs to be opened. What are you trying to do?
