Need help disabling a combobox on subform or disable subform

9 New Member
There is one combobox on a subform named Report Soil Series Subform1. The combobox is named cboSoilSeries. I need to disable this so the user can't enter values. I could also disable the whole subform since this is the only control on the subform. I've tried this line of code but it says you can't disable the control while it has focus.
Forms![Survey Report]![Report Soil Series Subform1].Form.cboSoilSe ries.Enabled = False

The combobox does not have focus when I run that line of code. I'm using Access 2007.

Thank you for the help,

Me.Report_Soil_ Series_Subform1 .Enabled = False

The form shows all the products purchased by a customer, both Active and Inactive in a ComboBox, cbProducts. My client wants to view all...

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...

I have created a bound subform on an unbound masterform linked together with a common field (A store's identification number) using an unbound combobox on the masterform and an invisible field on the subquery, which filters for a particular store. The subform is in continuous mode. So, what you see when you select a store is a list of all the items that that have not been billed for. There is a simple yes no field that filters out all...

I have a ComboBox, when dblClicked, displays the combobox's row content in a continuous subform. Changes can be made to this content in the subform and then closed. The ComboBox needs to be requeried to immediately reflect these changes.

I guess I could requery the combobox from the Close event of the...
