    [question & need help] subform became frozen

    hi,

    so i have made this form with subform

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	form-subform.png 
Views:	9 
Size:	96.8 KB 
ID:	8395
    Tag No and Tag Code share the "master-child link"

    when I first made it, the subform works fine... I was able to select a data from Tag No, and the same data would appear in Tag Code. then I could insert values in the subform and make calculations (using calculated field)



    the problem,
    now the subform is like frozen, I cannot input data using the subform anymore. one thing I did was that I made a query that used the subform data (because I wanted to export the data). also in the subform are quite a few calcluated fields, which I've reinputted in the query.(since I needed the results of the calculated fields).
    could the query have done that?
    if not, what could have happened, and how can i fix this problem?

    thanks in advance

    Allen Browne has an excellent article that explains why Queries are frequently Read-Only:

    Why is my query read-only?

    thanks Missinglinq for the link...:P

    figured it out... somehow the "Allow Additions" property of the subform got set to "No"...(-.-)a
    changed it and it works just as before...
