data on subform is carried over from previous record when a new record is added

43 New Member
Hi -I have a form which contains a sub-form. The sub-form is tied to the main form by a shared field called Project_ID. The main form has one record per Project. The sub-form has many records per Project.

When I'm adding Project records and go to a new record, the sub-form has no data in it. But then as soon as I type any data into the first field on the main form (after I type in the first character), the sub-form appears to populate itself with the data from the previous record. When I tab into the sub-form, this carryover data disappears (it's never stored in the new record, it just appears there temporarily until the subform gets focus.

It's bizzare behaviour and I can't figure out how to make it stop. I tried requerying the subform and setting the focus to it and moving the focus away (both on the On Current and On Dirty actions of the main form), but those don't work.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

I don't know Bill. Perhaps it may be version specific. Why not post which you're using and see if anyone recognises it. We do have experts here who are very experienced with forms & subforms and stuff.

We're using SQL Server 7 with an Access 2000 MDB as a front end with ODBC linked tables.

When there is a single user using it, we don't seem to have that problem. It seems that we had this problem when we first converted from an MDB back end...

Hello there, I have a main form frmOrder and inside a subform sbfrmOrderDetail.

I need an automated procedure to copy data from an Access table to a SQL Server table. Speed is important. What is the recommended technique? I can export the data from Access, copy it via FTP, then import it into SQL Server. I've tried that, and the speed is acceptable. It is an ugly solution, however, and I expect to find a better one -- preferably a solution better integrated with the Access RDBMS. I've tried using an ODBC...

I have a main form with multiple Subforms that are all displaying Datasheet information related to the Main form record. When I make changes/adds to the records(s) in the subform and tab to another subform, it saves those previous subform records fine, but when I make changes to the subform records and then change the mainform criteria, it doesn't save those subform records. I can use an event to prompt for saving the records on the...
