    Unanswered: Trouble with displaying subform data

    I'm having trouble displaying the info from a subform in my main form
    I don't see any reason why it shouldn't show. when i open the subform independently all the data is there but when i open the mainform it stays blank (see attachment)
    any help would be much appreciated.

    check the properties of te sub form
    in particular check the link master and link child properties
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    they are empty
    I have another subform on my mainform where these properties are empty as well, but that one works perfectly.

    Look at the differences in the way the two subforms are implemented then
