How do I filter a form based on a value contained in the subform?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Best way is to first create parent form and than add subform object from tool bar to form.

It will automatically start the wizard where you will have to tell which field to link between parent and child form.

Post completion of wizard you can go to design form and change the appearance of form.

    Hi,

    The required filtering can be done by changing the RecordSource of the main form to an SQl statement with an inner join.

    AfterUpdate event procedure filters the form like this:

    Private Sub cboShowCat_AfterUpdate()
        If IsNull(Me.cboShowCat) Then
            Me.FilterOn = False
        Else
            Me.Filter = "ProductCatID = """ & Me.cboShowCat & """"
            Me.FilterOn = True
        End If
    End Sub

    Thanks and regards
