standard toolbar sort buttons don't work for subform

I have a master form with a simple subform that displays line items in
datasheet mode. Everything works fine, except that when the subform
has the focus, the standard Access sorting and filtering toolbar
buttons are not available. I also tried a custom toolbar, but they are
disabled there too.

It seems odd, because when the same records are diplayed on their own
"master" form in datasheet mode, those same toolbar buttons are
available. It seems incredibly silly that such built-in functionality
would work with a main form but not a subform. Any ideas for a fix or
workaround would be greatly appreciated.

Can't you just right click and sort?

It's not enough that the subform has focus, a field or column in the subform
must also have focus. You should also check for any code behind the subform
(like the On_Current event that might re-sort, requery, or reset the
recordsource).

I have created two forms: frmBrowseNegsMainform and frmBrowseNegsSubform. I put a subform control on the first of these. The SourceObject property for the subform control is, of course, frmBrowseNegsSubform. I would like to perform an ascending or descending sort on any of the 7 columns shown in datasheet view in the subform control. I've been unsuccessful. Is there something tricky about sorting in subform controls?

Hey All- I don't think this is possible, but we'd love it if it were. We would like to have a pane of our own design docked along the left side of our Access application's main window. This pane might have any number of things on it... buttons, a treeview, etc... and have a layout we would specify. It would need to be truly docked to the main window, like a toolbar is, and be resizable. (Some of the things we've found for doing this...

I have an MS Access app with multiple forms. One of the forms has a Toolbar (MsComctlLib.Toolbar) and it works as advertised. I handle the buttons in the Toolbar1_ButtonClick event. I would like to be able to control the toolbar from another form. Forms!frmClipping!Toolbar1.Buttons(2).Clicked = True does not work. Does anybody have any ideas how to do this? Gerhard

Hi, I am using WinXP Pro with Access 2003. I created a custom toolbar and I added the Sort Ascending and the Sort Descending button to it. When the user wants to browse a table, I have a table selection window that displays the tables. When the user selects the table I open a window that diplays the table in Datasheet mode, but the Sort buttons on the toolbar are not enabled. I can't find any documentation on this, can anyone help. TIA
