    pop up form

    All; using Access 2016. I have a subform that when open on main form; may have multiple records. I want to have a pop up form to display the records in datasheet view of that particular customer. I can start with creating the form for customer but how would I link the customer records to the customer open on the form?

    you simply reference the CustomerID from your main form in the recordsource of the pop-up form (Forms!frmYourMainFormWithSubform!CustomerID) then in the OnCurrent event of the main form you check to see if the pop-up form is open (using the public function below) and if it is you simply requery it.
    Code:
    Public Function IsOpen(ByVal strFormName As String) As Boolean
    
        IsOpen = False
        ' is form open?
        If SysCmd(acSysCmdGetObjectState, acForm, strFormName) <> 0 Then
            ' if so make sure its not in design view
            If Forms(strFormName).CurrentView <> 0 Then
                IsOpen = True
            End If
        End If
    
        Exit Function
    
    End Function
    Cheers,

    Wherever you want it. A button, the double click event of a textbox, etc.
