Remember that ASP.NET (just like any other web technology) is stateless. You can not call from one form to another form like you can in a desktop application. Each form only lives one at a time, and for a very brief moment of time. If you want to move data between forms, you need to use some type of method that sends the data to the other page (like using the querystring of the URL) or a method that implements some persistance of the data on the server (like the Session collection).

Work smarter, not harder.
