Referencing SubForms and their Controls by Databaseguy
Posted: 3 Aug 01

"The complete syntax is rather complex and not at all obvious"

(Thank you Getz/Litwin & Gilbert)

Forms("MainForm")("SubForm").Form.Controls.("SubFormControlName")

If you had a sub form named MySubForm, a Main Form named MyMainForm, and a control on the sub form called myComboBox you wanted to set the visible property to false, your code would read:

Forms("MyMainForm")(MySubForm").Form.Controls("myComboBox").Visible = False
