Look in Access HELP for the "Parent." property.

Your code will look something like:


from within the subform.

If I may jump in here with related question...

What would be the proper way to code this human syntax from
the subform:

	If the main form is a new record, then subform field
	[PageNumber] (value) should be "1".

Change Master Site Ordering so it allocates to Independent Site
Currently the PO Generator allows a master site to order for subordinate sites. But what it does not do is indicate which inventory is for the independent site versus the Master site. So basically this capability is not helpful. It should not only display the inventory that is to be allocated to the Master versus the Subordinate site, but it should also create a PO from the subordinate site to the Master site so the inventory can easily transfer. These changes would make this functionality usefull We do not find the functionality in its current form useful. Thanks, Jason ------------...

How to customize the Item Properties Form

You can replace them, as several existing add-ins do. You can also use the ItemSave hook to pop your form after the OK button on Item Properties is clicked. That's the most granular activation that's available. Gle...

I.e. if the customer pays in cash he or she would be eligible for a special discount, because those forms of payment does not cost the retailer any extra risk or commision. This could be an advantage for those customers paying in that particular form and could be used to attract this kind of consumers. In many countries most small retailer...
