Simple code... but... copy & Paste

Experts,
Please share some light on this simple thing... I am so preplexed.
Bascially, I am trying to copy Product Name from an open form and
paste it to the Product Name field in Form2.
Dim ProdNm As String

ProdNm = Me.[ProductName]

DoCmd.OpenForm "Form2", , , , acFormAdd

Me![PurchaseOrdersS ubform].Form![ProductName] = ProdNm
What did I code wrong? Why is this not working?

Thanks in advance.

Me![PurchaseOrdersS ubform].Form![ProductName] = ProdNm

should be:

Forms!Form2.Pro ductName.Value = ProdNm

Assuming that ProductName is the name of the control in Form2 that you
want to paste the value to.

You could also pass the value to Form2 in the OpenArgs portion of the
OpenForm command, and then have code in the FormLoad event of Form2 to
put it in the textbox you want.
