How do I reference a control in an active subform?

How do I reference a control in an active subform?

I know this is how to reference a control in an active parent form.

CODE -->

Forms([Screen].[ActiveForm].[Name])!txtFirstName.Visible = False 

But how do I reference a control in an subform of that active parent form?


RE: How do I reference a control in an active subform?

Thank you for your reply but that doesn't help me.

Here's what I'm planning to do...
I have several mainforms with subforms and several controls with the same functions to all the mainforms.
I renamed all the controls similar through all the mainforms so I can call them from a module to save from repetitive coding.

The problem I have is I cannot get the active subform's name.
