combobox in subform related to field in main form


I hava a main form F1, form with a subform F2 in datasheet view.
There is a combobox in the main form C1, and a combobox C2 in the

I want the dropdown options of the combobox in C2 to change depending
on the value selected in C1.

I've tried to specify the datasurce for the C2 values as:

select columname from table where columname1 = Forms!F1!C1

but I can't get any values in the options forcombobox C2, and they do
not change when the value in C1 is changed.

How can I make this work?

Hi Mariel,

The syntax for interfacing with a combobox on a subform is something
like this:

From a command button on the main form:

Private Sub Command1_Click( )
Me.SubformName. Form.Combobox1. RowSourceType = "Value List"
Me.SubformName. Form.Combobox1. RowSource = "test1;test2;te st3"
End Sub

Me is the main form - then follow it by a period and the name of the
subform followed by a period and the class type "Form" followed by a
period and the name of the combobox on the subform. In my example I set
the rowsourceType property of the combobox on the subform to a "Value
List", then I add the values to the value list - followed by semicolons
withing the string of values. You can change Command1_Click to your
combobox on the main form.

The problem is that if I run the subform by itself, the combobox shows the exact data that I want. However when I run the main form, ...

Hi, I am working on a genealogy form. The only table (so far) lists everybody in the family, one record per person. Each record has an autonum ID.

Hi, I have two very similar forms each with a subform. The main form gets a few fields from the user and passes this back to a query that the subform is bound to. The requery is done when the user enters the last qualifying field on the main form. In one case this works fine, the subform shows the data the user wants to update -- which means showing all the data put in previously (ie showing this via the requery and the continuous...

Greetings! Still the same application (as previous posts). I worked on the app while at work (don't tell my boss ... cause this is just for fun and not work related) and the form was working, but now when I try to repeat the code at home (for real) it won't work. I suspect that I haven't replicated the logic and forms at home from what I remember that I did while at work. My subform is based on a table called "tblTrialClass" and it...

Help Please... I would like to populate a combo box on a form with a query that compares data from two tables. Any record that is unique in table1 should continue to populate my combobox. The instant the record appears also in table2 it should no longer be listed in my combo box. This is not a key field in either of the tables. Basically what I am trying to do is prevent the user from entering duplicate values even though it is not a key...
