Once I write the program and compile it there are no errors found in the program. But when I try to run the program the form sheet pops up but it's blank. Am I missing a step somewhere.

Kinnie,

Please post your code if it is reasonably small so that your readers can
evaluate whether you have coded anything incorrectly. Also, knowing the
purpose of your program makes it alot easier to evaluate whether your code
is correct.

Happy Tuesday,
Andrew

Make sure you understand that just because the program compiles without
error, there's absolutely no guarantee it will do what you intended.

That being said, it SHOULD do what you programmed.

The best way to work through some of these programs is to write or find
minimum code samples that do the thing you're trying to do and modify
or compare it.

That is one reason why every language typically has a "Hello, World!"
sample program. Start with the basics.

Good Luck!
