Trapping a next record event in subform

P: n/a
Hi there,

Does anyone know the simplest way I can trap the next record event in Access
2000 on a subform?

I have a main form with tab control which holds several subforms, and the
subforms are not editable unless the user clicks the "edit" button within
the subform. But I want to lock the subform's textboxes again once the user
proceeds to the next record. For some reason I was thinking form_current
would work, but it doesn't.

I am hoping I don't have to go through referencing the main form, that has
been such an ugly thing to debug in the past. remove the xs to reply
directly or post here. Thanks in advance for any advice ...

Are you using the pertinent *subform's* "On Current" event procedure? I see no
reason why that won't work.
