Count records in subform

2 New Member
I have a subform that shows images (0, 1, 2, ...etc) linked to a main form. I would like to display the current record number of total number of records for each linked record on the main form. (ie "Image" X " of " Y).

My problem is that as I move between records on my main form, the record information on the subform does not change. I set the subform to NOT show the navigation button (I put command buttons on the form with that functionality). I have tried:
Initially:

lblRecords.capt ion = 1 'increment by +1 or -1 if me.recordset.mo venext or moveprevious
lblTotalRecords .caption = me.recordset.re cordcount

The values get really messed up as I navigate through the sub-form and main form. I am very frustrated because I thought this would be simple.

I am a VBA neophyte, so please use small words. :-)

Thanks in Advance

If I understood you correctly, you want the counts for your subform records while moving thru different records on the main form. Try this in the Current event of your main form. You have to replace illustrative object names like YourSubformCont rol with their actual names in your application. I am also assuming your label captions are on the main form. If these assumptions are not correct, the code will have to change accordingly:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.YourSubformControl.RecordsetClone.movelast
  2. Me.lblRecords.caption = Me.YourSubformControl.CurrentRecord
  3. Me.lblTotalRecords.caption = Me.YourSubformControl.RecordsetClone.RecordCount
If the above does not work,place a textbox named txtRecordIndica tor in the desired location on your main form, and place this code on your Form_Current() event for your main form.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.YourSubformControl.RecordsetClone.movelast
  2. Me.txtRecordIndicator.Value =  Me.YourSubformControl.CurrentRecord & _
  3. " of " & Me.YourSubformControl.RecordsetClone.RecordCount

Hah! Perfect and so much simpler than my attempted solutions (plus it works). I actually wanted the count and total records information to be on the sub-form, not the main form. Changing the code was an easy fix.

me.RecordsetClo ne.movelast
Me.lblRecords.c aption = Me.CurrentRecor d
Me.lblTotalReco rds.caption = Me.RecordsetClo ne.RecordCount

Thank you!

I have a form with a subform datasheet - I need code behind the OnDelete event of the subform: Private Sub Form_Delete(Cancel As Integer) 'do something that depends on which record is deleted End Sub This works okay when only one record is selected and the delete key is pressed (or right-click delete is selected - makes no difference). But if multiple records are selected in the datasheet, the code runs for the first

Hi there, I have a form in an Access project that contains a subform which displays the results of a query of the style "select * from where = #a certain date#". In the main part of the form the user can change the date, which will force a requery in the subform to bring up records from the date selected. My question is this... The query in the subform is a very simple one, with only three fields being returned. In the interest of...

I have a main form with navigation buttons on it and a label showing for example Record 1 of 15 using recordsetclone on it and eveything works fine. When I move through the records the record number changes fine. Within this main form I have a subform detailing distribution records for the contact (main form is based on this) that also has navigation buttons and a label showing Distribution 1 of ##. This is where the problem lies. The...

On a main form, there is a subform. I want to make a field that will show how many records there are within that subform. Count on the pk, where the subform's fk = the main form pk.. or something like that. I have this, but not getting it right.. keep getting #name =DCount(tblApplications!AppID,,tblApplications!CandID=Forms!frmCandidateEntry!anCandID) any thoughts? Thanks.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
