Trying to link a form with a subform

Hi,

I've inherited an Access database and need to create a form which will
allow me to view and alter the data. I've created a new form and using
a tip I got from this helpful site http://www.jmhare.com/wildhare2.htm
, I've created two combo boxes, with the contents of the second combo
box depending upon the value in the first. That's working fine though
it took a while to get it working properly because I don't think the
database is too correct or efficient (lookups everywhere). I want to
create a subform on that form where one of the fields in the records
is the same value as the second combo box.

Here's the SQL I have so far:

QryCountryCodes ByClub
---------------------
SELECT Countries.[CTRY CODE]
FROM Countries INNER JOIN Clubs ON Countries.[CTRY ID] =
Clubs.[CLUBS-COUNTRY_Code]
ORDER BY Countries.[CTRY CODE];

QryCountryCodes ByClub (combo box 1)
-----------------------------------
SELECT DISTINCT QryCountryCodes ByClub.[CTRY CODE]
FROM QryCountryCodes ByClub
ORDER BY QryCountryCodes ByClub.[CTRY CODE];

QryClubShortnam esFromCombo1 (combo box 2)
----------------------------------------
SELECT Clubs.CLUBS_Sho rtname
FROM Countries INNER JOIN Clubs ON Countries.[CTRY ID] =
Clubs.[CLUBS-COUNTRY_Code]
WHERE (((Countries.[CTRY CODE])=[forms]![frmMain]![COMBO1]))
ORDER BY Clubs.CLUBS_Sho rtname;

The relevant tables are called Personnel, Clubs and Countries. The
Personnel table is basically football players' details, including a
field called PLAYERS-CLUBS_Shortname which is a lookup to the field in
Clubs called CLUBS_Shortname . The Countries table has a three letter
code (CTRY CODE) and the Clubs table has a field (CLUBS-COUNTRY_CODE)
which is a lookup to the CTRY ID identifier in the Countries table. I
want the subform to only show those records where
Personnel.PLAYE RS-CLUBS_Shortname = the value in the second combo box
which itself depends upon the value in the first combo box. I hope
there's enough information there. I'd be grateful for any help at all,
been trying to get this to work for a day now.

Cheers

Mark

I am using Access 97 and have had a problem joining a main form and a subform. I have a main form and a subform. The data source on the main form is a SELECT statement referring to three tables. The subform's data source is a table. When I try to link the Child and Master fields, I get the message "Can't build a link between unbound forms." I have tried typing in the common fields and it still does not work.

I have a unbound form with a tab control with four tabs in an Access 97 database. On each tab I have a sub form each form on the sub forms is bound to its own table. Each table has a field that can link them all together. I have put an invisible unbound control on the master form that gets populated on open. I set the link child and link master of each sub form to the unbound control on the master form. When the form opens all the subforms...

Hello, Using Access 2003 SP-1. I have a form which contains a subform. Each form represents a table, and is linked by two fields. These fields are also related in the underlying tables, with referential integrity and cascading updates enabled.

I have a subform control on a mainform. Each time I do anything experimentally with it - like even change its Width property, A97 takes the liberty of setting values in the link child field and link master field to a common field value. This is happening, I suppose, because I have purposefully left the two property settings empty. I'm just using the unbound subform control as a glorified list box. Can I prevent this undesirable...

Hello all, I am hoping that you can help me with a problem that has occurred numerous times on various forms in the two databases that I am working on. When I first add a subform to a form linking child and master fields (primary key and foreign key), the subform will automatically update when the master field on the main form is changed (it is in a combo box). However, when I work more on the form - making it a bit more complicated, adding...
