Form with Subform

Form with Subform

I have a form with a subform which contains records.  I have a text box on the form that equals one of the records.  When I choose a record it shows up on the form correctly.  But when I print the form, it always prints the first record, even if I have selected the second or third record.  Any ideas?


RE: Form with Subform

That is why reports are so much better than printing forms. Create a query that a report is built from. In the query, put criteria that refers to the form you have open.

For example, if I wanted the order that is showing on my form (frmOrder) to print out, I simply put the following in the criteria of the OrderNo field in the query:


Then build a report based on this query. When the report prints, it will print the record that is showing on the Order Form.
