Click on SubForm record and populate main form

Hello All Access Guru's:

I was wondering if you could assist me with a little problem that I am
having using subform.

Is it possible to scroll down a subform to a particular record, click on
that record and have it populate the main form?

Yes, you could do that, but Subforms are usually used to show data that is
related to, and subsidiary to, the data on the main form. Perhaps a more
common way to do what you want is to use a ComboBox ... the ComboBox Wizard
has an option that will provide the code that uses the selection in the
Combo to locate a record for the Form -- it's just about all done for you,
already.
