On child form create bound list box to show related records from parent form

73 New Member
Hi all,

I have two tables with a many-to-many relationship which is causing many problems. My parent and child forms are linked via a junction table. I want to make it possible to create a read-only version of the child table so that you don't have to link to it from the parent table.

A form linking the two together has been created with a combobox where you can pick and choose which records relate to each other.

I'd like on the child form there to be a list box or combo box which shows the records from the parent table linked to that record from what is picked within the comboboxes of the "junction form".

In essense it would mean that people reading the child form would know which names the record is based on if they didn't want to go via the parent form to read it.

Any help would be great,

Hmmm... I tend to do these by hand as I rename controls... I haven't tried it using the Wizards... worth a try.

I gave up on the wizards years ago (except for the very few cross-tab) because I had to go in and change so much that I decided it was easier to just do the work by hand. :)

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.

I have a Tab Control in the form, and in one of the tabs I have a subform (sfmSiblings) in which I wish to list...

The child form can be dragged out of the Parent form. I set the child form to IsMdiContainer = False and the Parent Form IsMdiContainer = True. I also coded in the Parent Form on load, Dim f As New frmEntryForm f.MdiParent = Me What am I missing? The child form appears not to be attached to the parent form.

Hopefully someone here can help me/point me in the right direction.

I am building a wizard and have an issue with one sub form. Whilst all others are about 5 fields tall this one is 15 fields.

On my form frmTopics (bound to table tblTopics), I've added a Copy button that copies the current topic record to create a new, identical one...simple enough. However, each topic record can have 1+ related records in tblTopicAttributes (a record for each attribute associated with the topic). So, I also want the copy action to create new and identical related records in tblTopicAttributes for the newly-created tblTopics record. I can do this with...
