I am coding an applicationin Visual Basic that has several fields to enter data into,
the data is then saved to a formatted .txt file

I would like to be able to set it up so a "template" is loaded and the fields for data entry change in accordance to the template selected.

Example :

1 window for the application, a file menu along the top.. one menu item is called "templates" within this menu are 3 selectable menu items. One called Finance, one called Shipping, One called Receiving

I would like each template to load a new set of data fields to be entered

So I have 1 form that contains the menu, I would like to section out the lower portion of the window form to have another form loaded into it.

Then I can just have each template call on a specific form window to populate within the main form.

I hope this is descriptive enough,

The bottom line I suppose is how do I have a form load within a form.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
