I have a SQL table with a list of forms (frmForm1, frmForm2)

i have a listbox that fills from this table and i would like it to call the form in the 'FormToCall' Column

How can i call a form if i only know the form name at runtime?

i didn't understand what your saying here?

Try declaring an object for the form2 and call it at runtime..

I have found the solution

Dim assem As Reflection.Assembly = Me.GetType.Assembly
Dim frm As Form = assem.CreateInstance(assem.GetName.Name & ".frmMaint")
