Copying between subforms, help please.

Hi all, I would appreciate some help please.
I just need pointing in the right direction as I am at a loss.
Basically I have a form (frmAddMaster) which displays two subforms
"Master Stock subform" and "Client Stock Template subform".
Each subform contains the following fields "Product ID,Product Description
and Size".
What I am trying to do is to select rows from the "Master Stock subform" and
copy them
to "Client Stock Template subform". I have created a macro which works but
only for
the "Product ID" field, it will not copy the rest of the row.
However if I manually select a row in "Master Stock subform" using the
cursor and then right click and
select copy, then move to the "Master Stock subform", select "Paste Append"
from the "Edit"
menu it works fine, what I want to be able to do is to select the rows from
"Master Stock subform"
then click a command button to automate the cut and paste process, is this
possible?

Regards, Dave.

A clarification: you don't really move data from subform to subform;
you move data from table to table. The subforms only display the
data.

Assuming that your subforms are based on different tables (implied in
your description below), copying a record from one table to another
can be done via a query. You just need to
- create the query that copies the data
- run the query at the appropriate time
- requery the 2nd subform to show the new record

You could maybe use "parameter query" (see help if you don't know
about these).

Give us more detail about your macro. It sound as if you're almost
there.

Hi Matt, thanks for the reply.
Yes I understand that the subform is only displaying what is
in tables and yes, there are two different tables.
Perhaps a little background will make things clearer.

My cousin runs his own business as a Stocktaker to the
Licensed Trade and is using an old DOS based program which
is no longer supported. I rather foolishly suggested I could write
a replacement using Access for him to use, although I have had some
experience with Access I am still very much a beginner, consequently my
request for help.

Basically the macro is trying to replicate the manual cut and paste
operation.
Macro Name: CopyItems
Action: GoToControl Master Stock subform Select subform.
Action: RunCommand Copy Copy selected data.
Action: GoToControl Client Stock Template subform Select Client
stock subform.
Action: RunCommand PasteAppend Append to Client Stock Table.

As I say this works but only for the first field "Product ID".

If I were doing it for myself, I'd use a Parameter Query.

A Parameter Query would basically be a query that appends a record
from the Master table into the Client table. You would give it a
criterion for the Product ID. That criterion would be a reference to
the Product ID of the selected record in on the Master subform, and
would have a syntax like this:

[Forms]![frm_TheParentFo rm]![chd_SubformCont rol]![txt_TheSubformC ontrol]

See the Help for more info about Parameter Queries.
