If you mean that you want to keep the main form's record from being
saved when the subform gets the focus, the only ways you can do that
1. Have the main form be unbound. In that case your own code has to do
the job of reading the record, assigning its field values to ...Textbox Information to Subform
I have a subform that I need to contain information from a main form. The

Anyone have any tips?

...Subform with Macro
I have a form (frm_BinDetails), within this form I have a subform
(frm_Cable). frm_Cable has a listbox (List23) which when the user
clicks on an entry the contents of the first column of that listbox
are displayed in a textbox (txt_ProcessID). The on click event of the
listbox runs a macro with the following code
Action = SetValue
Item = [Forms]![frm_Cable]![txt_ProcessID]
Expression = [Forms]![frm_Cable]![List23]

Hey y'all, I've got a form that lists all the Students in a class and
a link to "Edit Student Information" which opens a form to edit
individual records. The link uses the same type of code generated by
the form wizard and it automatically filters the records to the class.
The next thing I want to do is to open the new form to exactly the
record that was highlighted in the list. I can capture the list
position from the subform (SelTop) and I found a method called
"GoToRecord" that works like this to go to the 8th record:

PersonalAssistant subform. I have used the Link Child and Master Fields

table is PersonID. Its an autonumber field which begins from 4000. When the
foreign key is added by access, it takes the last digit or last two digits.
