Naming of subreport text boxes

P: n/a
I was wondering what the acceptable naming procedure is for a text box on a
subform when using VBA. I have always used.

[Forms]![frmMainform]![frmSubform]![TextBox].

Why I asks is that this has let me down lately in Access 2003 and I seem to
remember seeing something that was an alternative way to name them which as
I remember had the word Form(s) in it. Is the way I have done it the only
way and if not, what are the alternative(s) and what is the acceptable way?

Its alright, I just visited The Access Web and found a wonderful article on
refering to form and subform controls and properties.

Thanks anyway.
