    I have a program where am trying to access a dataset in the main form from a 2nd Winfrom. I have created a form 1 ref but when I use this to access the datatable in the dataset it doesnt seem to work. The following code is for Form 2 and I Movset1 is the dataset in the main form. I then try to use a dataview to access the main dataset. Any help would be appreciated.
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Data.SqlClient;
    using System.Data.Common;
    namespace MovieDiary
        public partial class Form2 : Form
            DataView Dv2 = new DataView();
            public Form2()
            public Form1 F1 = new Form1();
            public void Form2_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            private void label1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (textBox1.Text == "")
                    MessageBox.Show(" Please enter a title to be deleted ");
                Dv2 = new DataView(F1.Movset1.Tables[0]);
                F1.dataGrid1.DataSource = Dv2;
                Dv2.RowFilter = "Title ='" + textBox1.Text + "'";
