    Unanswered: Subforms show up as tables?

    How do you make them show up as a form (i.e. a form within the main form I am currently working with)

    So basically in design view the subforms show up as forms, tis all good.

    In the form view, where you actually edit the data, they show up as tables.

    Open up the Form that the Subform is based on, in Design View, then go to Properties - Format and change the Default View from Datasheet (the apparent current setting) to Single View or Continuous View, whichever suits your needs.

    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!

    Ahh now that I look at it, I think the tables look much more effective than forms within forms in terms of editing/adding data, as you fit much more on one screen than just 1 record. So I'll stick with that.

    Is there any way of adding the creator name to the database?
