try first to run the query of the datasource of its subform with the parent form opened. if no records then I think your problem is with the bound column of the combobox.
Please inform me for the result.
the subform query is running ok dependent on what the combobox shows so that part is ok but i need it so once the user clicks the combobox (or updates) then it auto updates the subform, whereas at the moment the old combobox selection is still being shown in the subform window but if i run the query with the new selection everything is fine>?!
So I think I need an update/refresh/requery type command oin the afterupdate on the combobox sot hat the subforms will auto update with the selection from the combobox (when its changed)... how can i do this in code please?!
