    Unanswered: Copying forms

    I have a form that I have spent hours formating and it looks great. I want to use the same form many times in different parts of my project. How can I copy and existing form (but give it a different name!)

    In your windows explorer, open your form in notepad or any 'simple' text editor. then, find the line "Attribute VB_Name = "Formname" ". Change the Formname, and save it with a filename that is the same with the Formname (for not confusing you) Then save it as "YourNewFormName.frm"...then you can load your new form in VB.
