Add a Subform in Access 2007
The main form in Access 2007 may have another form inserted into it called a subform. The combination of form and subform may be called a hierarchical form, master/detail form or parent/child form. Subforms are most commonly used to show data with a one-to-many relationship. The following steps will show how to add a subform in Access 2007.


subform wont' update...
I'm testing out a db design where there is a subform that is based on the junction record table(so it's a m:m relationship).three tables in total, lab, test approval and record.

PLease see the attached. Only 3 records, but the subform won't show the relationship between the two tables.In fact, the subform shows nothing.

I have checked everything, making sure the master/child linkages are on the lab_num.but no luck and I don't know if I've fallen into the trap of using lookups.but with a m:m I can't think of any other way around it.


Subform troubles
My subform it wont let me enter in multiple data im pretty sure its many to many but not sure how to change it


Subform goes out of touch when its table is edited?
I have an Access 2007 subform linked to the mainfor, and they were both working fine. it linked on the proper parent/child link, edits on the subform tracked the proper parent record, etc. etc.

Then I edited the table bound to the subform simply to make one of its text fields longer; that's all!

Now, data from the subform table does not show up in the subform at all.

I can still add a new record via the subform, but I will only be able to see it briefly (while initially entering it). if I go to a different mainform record and then return to the one that should have the new subtable record, again, it doesn't show.

However, looking directly at the table for the subform shows that the new record (and the old ones) are indeed still allproperly there in their table.


How to show new record at the top of a subform
I have a database in access 2007. The main form has a subform and I would like a blank new record as the first record of a subform. Is there a way to do that without making two separate subforms (one for a blank new record subform and the other for records that already exist


Adding record to subform on exit of main form and no repeat record in subform
I want to add a record to a subform when save a record on the main form, additionally I want the subform to have no repeated record. ie. when people edit a record it wont add another record to the subform on exiting the main form.


Database wont open
I have a database that wont open. When I try and open it is says could not find file. I know the file is there, as when I have used the shift key to open the back end it came up then I had to update it from access 2003 to access 2007 so I converted it then it came up with the error. Is there an easy way to force it open


Restricting SubForm to One Record Entry Per Parent: Access 2007
I have a one-to-one relationship between two table. I have successfully added the subform, but I get the option to add additional child records in the Datasheet View. This means that when a user tabs to the next row and enters data they get an error--and they should.

Question: How do I restrict the subform to show only one row in Datasheet View?


Creating a "subform"
I have created a main form and did a drag and drop of another form that is related to it. I establishe the relationship as a one to many between the too. Now when I open the form the main form opens but the "subform" will not. I have tried different things including adding fake data but it still wont display. Can you advise me? I dont want to use the subform view I want to have it in form view


Count of Entries in a Subform
This is my 1st post, Im kind of Teaching myself Access and am very new to it all

I have a query that I can run with no problems, the query is displayed as a table in a subform which is exactly how I want it.

In my table I have columns that are named (lets say) A, B, C,D
I would like to be able to count the number of records that are on that table , and display it on the main form.
I have in my footer of the subform a textbox which contains =Count([B])
If drag this to the Detail section of my subfom it displays the totals as a new column of the table, if I put it back to the footer where it should be then of course it does not display
But the trouble Im having with is that I cannot get the total to display on my main form (that the subform sits in) everything I try just wont work all I get is #name


Subform records wont display
it's me again. One problem solved another problem found.

I have a subform which contains dated notes about a customer.

These notes display fine if you cycle through the customers using the record selectors but stops working when I navigate to a customer using my search function.

For some reason the subform does not refresh to match the newly searched customer.

Im just gunna uplaod my database so you can have a look at how the notes section works.

The image ive uploaded demonstrates the section you need to be looking at


show subform depending on combobox
I wanted to show subform depending on combobox in Access 2007 like this example in Attachment
the problem is this code executed in Access 2003 but not executed in Access


Vertical Scrollbar not appearing
I have a subform which displays a number of records that exceeds the allocated space. However the vertical scrollbar does not appear until a record is selected beyond the edge of the subform. This can only be done by using the down arrow key or navigation buttons.

Without the scrollbar being immediately present a user could assume that all records are already being displayed.

Once the scrollbar appears it remains present and the full extent of the records can be viewed using the mouse scrollwheel but I would like this to work right from the start. My belief is that the scrollbar should appear automatically whenever the records overflow the subform area.

Scrollbar property of the subform is set to show both.

Opening reports from a control source subform
I am having trouble opening a report from a command within a subform.

I have a main form with a control source in which a navigation panel no the main form dictates what opens in the control source i.e. subforms.
This all works great but one action I require is within this control source is a subform with a command button to open a report. But it wont open. However it will open when I just view that subform as a form and not in the control source.


Show / Hide Datasheet Columns in a Subform
I've got a main form with two lists boxes. I want to show the visible columns in my subform (which is a datasheet) in one listbox and show the hidden columns in the other. Also I want to allow the user to hide / show columns using right or left arrow buttons between the list boxes. My subform is bound to a stored procedure using ADO.


Subform does not show data
I have created a form that is a master guest list and a subform that lists all the guests attending under that Master name. I entered data into the subform and it is in the table but when I bring the main form up the subform data does not show.


Display subform total
I have an Access 2007 single form with subform. The subform has a hidden textbox that sums a record in the subform and displays in a textbox on the form. The form textbox is blank, but becomes visible if I click on the taskbar or open another app. If I update the subform or move to another record, I loose it again. I've tried requery and recalc on practually every event of the form, subform and both textboxes to no avail. What will make this textbox stay visible?


AfterUpdate Not Firing
I have a subform which has a textbox in the footer which calculates a total amount. On my main form I have a textbox with the control source set to the textbox on my subform.

What I want to do, is every time this textbox changes, to update another textbox with the same amount. So Textboxtotal and TextboxCopy are the same all the time.

I understand that the afterupdate event wont fire as it is not updates via keypress, but I'm stuck there.


Added a new subform to a tab and now none of them display
I am working in Access 2007.

I have a form that consists of several tabs. The tab I am working on has several subforms; only one displays at a time depending on a particular condition (ProgID = a particular value). This has all been working fine until I added a new subform. All the subforms have visible set to No on the Format tab in the Property Sheet and is conditionally set to True in VB in a case statement that checks the ProgID.

When I run the db, no subforms show up at all. If I change the newest subform to Visible = Yes, then that subform will display and if I am in another program (where the new form should not display), the subform for that program displays and the new one does too. I hope that makes sense.

Any suggestions on what is going on here? Why would all the subforms stop working when I added the new subform? As far as I can tell, all the properties are set up the same way.


Textbox wont allow currency formatting
I have a Form with a subform datasheet. On that subform datasheet I have a 3 column combo box that displays a BOM description from column 1. Next to it on the same subform, I have a textbox that has the control source =[CboBOMDescription].[column](3), which is a currency field.

My problem is that I can't get the textbox to display the number as a currency! Its a currency in the original table, aswell as in the query that the combo is using, as well as in the properties of the textbox, but it still doesn't want to display as a currency.
