I have a main form, 2 sub forms, and 2 text-boxes on the main form. I have a search box now for the first subform. Works perfectly. Once the users filtered based on name, I want them to be able to select that filtered record which would filter another subform.
My first attempt was to assign the ID that was selected to a textbox on the main form, then automatically requery the second subform based on that value. I used this way on my search box. I'm sure there is a way to go directly from clicking the value to requerying the second subform, but i don't know it. If you do, i would be grateful.
That being said even the indirect first attempt isn't working. It all has to do with the ".", "!", and ordering of this stuff. I'm not sure what . and ! mean. Can anyone explain them, or point is an explanation? It has to do something with Parent child, but beyond that i'm at a loss.
I did find this very useful site http://access.mvps.org/access/forms/frm0031.htm. It shows what code you can use depending on where you are and what you're doing. Even with that as a resource, i'm still at a loss.
Me.[Collateral] = Acct_Reference_id
Me.[Navigation]![textbox] = Acct_Reference_id
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
