How do I check that subform has no records ? by WP
Posted: 18 Oct 00

The SQL recordset for the subform will be  "SELECT * FROM subformTable WHERE childField='" & txtLinkFieldOnParent & "';"

Note I have assumed your link field is alpha-numeric and that there is only one link field.

So you just have to :

Dim rsSub as recordset
Dim strSQL as String

strsql="SELECT * FROM subform WHERE childField='" & txtLinkFieldOnParentForm & "';"

Set rsSub=Currentdb.openrecordset(strSQL)

Now to check for records :

If rsSub.RecordCount=0 then
          Msgbox "No records"


Set rsSub = Nothing
