I am currently in the process of making a game for the purpose of learning to use vb. I have encountered a problem tho. I declare something as a variable in General Statements and then use it through that one form to change things on the form but when i tell it to change a varible the things affected by the varible stay how they were when the form was first loaded how can i tell the form to change the values depending on the changed variable... also can i have the varible affect other forms?

there is a refresh command but its never worked for me (makes me think im using it wrong) lol my only solution for that was to unload / reload the form - which yes is a pain in the [bleep].

anywho your second question I CAN! answer! lol
if you want a variable to affect a different form than that which your viewing, you need to refer to it by the form its on...
public varchange as boolean

Private Sub Command1_click()
if varchange = true then
form2.label1.caption = "Varible is true"
end sub
