Setfocus on a subform

Setfocus on a subform

Setfocus on a subform

(OP)
I have a form with a subform, and the subform has a subform also. On the main form, in the form header section I have an unbound combo box from which the user must select a client. On the after update event of the combo box I want the focus to go to a record on the second subform so that data can be input directly.
All the references to how this should be done I have followed, but the focus remains on the combo box.
Here is a sample of my code.

[Deliveries].Form![Jobs]![ProductID].SetFocus

Thanks in advance

Hi Missy Ed

Thanks for the help but it still does not move the focus to the desired field. Maybe I should try redesigning my form so that it doesn't need all the subforms.

RE: Setfocus on a subform

I have had trouble with this in the past as well. Try this:

If you want to go to a particular field:

DoCmd.GoToControl "SubFormName"
DoCmd.GoToControl "FieldName"

If you want to go to a new record:

DoCmd.GoToControl "SubFormName"
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

This has worked for me in the past, and the only help I could find on the subject, said to do it this way.
