ms access subform problem

P: n/a
I have created a main form with a combo box (cbo_student_events) that
has a drop down list for various student events. I have a subform that
displays all the corresponding data for the cbo_student_events. Eg.
From the combo box, I select 'Ski Trip', the subform should display
all the Ski Trip details like location, time, etc. I have
LinkMasterFields and LinkChildFields correctly. The problem is that
the data in the subform will only diplay if I click the design view
button twice. Clicking it once, takes me into design view then
clicking it again takes me back to form view, now the data in the
subform displays.
Anyone have any ideas what I need to do to have the data in my subform
show as soon as I select the value from my combo box
(cbo_student_events).
Thanks

Sounds like a problem with the events you're using. Check to see
you're using the AfterUpdate event. If that doesn't help, maybe try
putting Me.Refresh into your code when you want it to display the
subform information. If that still fails to work, you may need to
post more info about your problem...
