Referencing control values in a subform

Referencing control values in a subform

Referencing control values in a subform

I have created a Quality Control application in Access 97.  I have an Income/ATP Calculation form that comprises a main form with 2 subforms.  All of the forms have  a one-to-one relationship.  All of the expressions work fine, except I am trying to pull a value off of a control in one of the subforms into a control on one of the other subforms.  Despite giving the full reference to the control Forms!formname!controlname, the value isn't pulled into the control.  This works for referencing a control on the main form.  I'm at my wit's end on this.  The only other option I can think of is to use a DLookup of the value in the control.  But DLookups can take time since they are really queries.  Any help on this would be appreciated!

RE: Referencing control values in a subform

Did you try ref the form as a sub with Forms!MyMainForm!Forms.MySubForm.FieldName

I recall linking a field on a sub form to a sub and including the ref to the main and sub form in the call.
