I would suggest you have a look at help of findinstance()

In the below example e_sales2form is the class name

** END HEADER -- do not remove this line
// Generated on 29.10.2021
parameter bModal
local f
f = new e_sales2form()
if (bModal)
    f.mdi = false // ensure not MDI

class e_sales2form of MUNEEM from "muneem.cfm"

So something of the following sort should work
X =  findinstance('e_sales2form')
if not empty(X)

If you are executing the code from within the form then simply
form.close() is sufficient.

I hope this helps.
