What do you mean, "point from the menu to any other forms"

Are you asking how you open a new form from a menu item?

The menu item calls a function. In that function you can do whatever
you want, including opening a new form.

Dim NewForm as new FormType
NewForm.ShowDialog
When I create my menu I do something like (this if for a context menu)

////
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("&Edit", New EventHandler(AddressOf
EditRecord))
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("&New", New EventHandler(AddressOf
NewRecord))
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("&Delete", New EventHandler(AddressOf
DeleteRecord))
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("Re&conciled", New
EventHandler(AddressOf MarkasReconciled))
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("&Refresh", New EventHandler(AddressOf
RefreshData))
RightClick.MenuItems.Add("&Highlight", New
EventHandler(AddressOf Highlight))
\\\\

You see that I add an EventHandler that points to a function

Handle the menu's click event. In the event handler, open one of the Forms.

Maybe you only forgot the "End Sub" to close the Sub you've shown us above?

your logic for opening a form is fine, you have another problem in your
code. The error message is telling you that you don't have an End Class
at the bottom for your Form1 Class. If you can't figure it out, post
the code for Form1 in here so we can look at it.
