How to add two subforms on a form

How to add two subforms on a form


I've been working for several months on 4D, and have been able to solve many basic design problem (e.g. how to populate a combobox with the content of a field of another table), but am still unable to use two subforms at the same time on a single "parent" form.

As soon as I include a single second subform, it seems that this second one is emptied after the "parent" form loading.  Then, I'm only getting information in one of the suform while I know that information should figure in the second one also.  As a proof, I erased the first subform and, once it was alone in the "parent" form, the previously empty subform was now populated with its respective data.

I then tried many options, as to use the command "REDRAW" on the "parent" form's method, but it didn't work.

Does anyone has an idea about this?

Thank you,
