I am using a subform as a datasheet to collect records. I have a global variable which is a claim number. Before opening the subform I set the default value in the source table to the global calim number and then open the sub form for the user to enter data. The problem is when records are added the claim number does not show up as it should. It shows up as a random number that is nothing like the claim number the default value is set to. Any thoughs on how or where I could be losing the claim number I want or why it's being converted to something else each time a new record is entered?
