Subforms into forms

I am having difficulty in adding a subform into my existing form, I
have designed very simply databases in the past & this is my first
attempt at compiling subforms - with little success I may add. In a
nutshell I have multiple variable data (defects) which occur on one
product, on one day etc. etc..

Can anyone advise of any literature that may be of use.

look forward to your replies.

There's a Control Wizard on the Toolbar... the icon is supposed to look like
a "magic wand"... that will lead you step by step through creating and
populating a Subform/Subreport control.

My personal preference is to first create the Form that will be embedded in
the Subform Control, then use the Wizard and specify that as the Source
Object.

My subforms are usually, but not always, a continuous forms view Form
showing multiple related records (if there are multiple records).

Have you tried using the Wizard? If so, follow up with what, specifically,
is giving you trouble.

First things first. Go to Tools,Relations hips and then put your two
tables into the relationship window. then drag your join field from
one table to the other. Once you do that, you should be able to
create a subform and have it work. Just create the subform first and
drop it into the main form in design view. It should do the
linkMaster/LinkChild stuff for itself.
Then you should be ready to go. Otherwise, look up subform in the
help or look at Northwind.
