Autonumber synchronization between subform & main form
I have a main form (EVENT) whose PK is an autonumber (EVENTID) and a second
field (EVENTNUMBER) which may or may not be unique, hence my use of the
autonumber. I then have 10 suforms (each with FK as an autonumber
EMP1...EMP10 and EVENTNUMBER) that need to be linked based on the main form
autonumber (EVENTID). This is where I'm running into problems. I need the
subform autonumbers to stay in synch with the main form autonumber, however,
not all 10 subforms will be populated for each single record entered (at
minimum only 1 subform will be populated). My form is for data entry
In Access Options one can set the Datasheet font. This applies
to new forms with a datasheet and not existing Datasheets.
Any way to set the font on existing Datasheets?
I'm using AC 2007 with split forms.
I don't run 2007, but a datatsheet form is pretty simple and quick to create
in other versions. You use the forms wizard, assign the fields you want, and
the form is created. Can't you change the Datasheet font to your choice in
Options, then use the wizard to recreate the datasheet forms? You're talking
about less than a minute a form.

You can certainly build a form to do this, but it is already built-in.

My database is designed for entering data requests. There are fields to be
answered for every request taken and then, depending on the type of data,
certain other questions may be asked.
In order to save space, I created tabbed forms and nested other tabbed forms
in them via subforms. I did this so that some questions could be sort of
"hidden" from the main form and could be viewed only if a particular record
needed to ask those questions.
My problem is that using tabbed forms via subforms does not link the answers

You probably used "Page" header/footer instead of "Form" header/footer. The
former is only used for printing.

The floating data sheet is part of MS Graph, the watered down charting

At the moment the maximum number of fields that can be laid out horizontally
on a form is three. This is quite limiting when, for example, there are
numerous custom fields that need to be incorporated on the form.
Only allowing three (and also no control over the size of the field box)
makes for very inefficient use of screen space.
Products such as Goldmine are a very good example of how much information
can be packed into a single screen, in an efficient manner.
