How to auto fill fields on subform from data on main form?

To all,

I have a Main form with multiple tabs, the form is for employee
information, one of the tabs a has a subform where I'll record the
names of the employees children if he/she has any.

The subform will work if I make the datasheet use a lookup to the
employee table, but then I have to select the employee each time I
want to add a record in the children subform.  I changed the children
table to not use the lookup to clerks on the employee name.

I had the subform working, (by working I mean, I manualy had to select
the employee from the lookup)  but I had the subform select the
employee using a lookup to the Clerks table.

Since this is a subform, I'd like to have the EmployeeName in the
subform set automatically to the Clerks.Name field from the main
form.  I've searched and read many articles but can't get it to work.

I read an article that mentioned that if I set the link master/child
to the corresponding fields, this would work.  I have set the fields
Clerk.Name = Children.EmployeeName, but when I go into the subform,
the Children.EmployeeName is not set automatically with the contents
of the Clerk.Name field, actually it reads as "frmClerks" (this is the
name of the main form).

Some background info for you.

Employee table fields:

Clerks Table has:
Name as text, here is where I store the employee name
Children as Yes/No

Children Table has:
ChildId as AutoNumber
EmployeeName as text

I have a one to many relationship for these two tables, tied by the
Name - EmployeeName fields.

If I'm confusing, sorry, I know this is long, but I'm stuck.

Calc Field to list invoices paid by same check on one line of repo

How to copy specific columns until end of data
I'm trying to import data from 2 workbooks into a summary (combination) workbook. The trouble I'm having, is I want to import only certain columns and have excel know to stop at the last row with data.

I want it to copy up to the last row containing any data--right now that's row 1046, but next month it could be row 1267.

Access 1.1 Data Base Migration to Access 2002

Auto correct or Auto complete
We are all familiar witht he auto correct or auto complete functions found in MS applications. Of course that means it is available in Access also. My question is this ... can this function be replicated within the DB, so that the set of auto correct items are part of the package rather than something that would have to be set up on each individual desktop system?

Any way to get rid of an auto-suggestion in the login dialog box, for Exchange/OL using RPC over HTTP?

Replace default CRM form with custom form
