records on form disapear

P: 5
Hi,

I searched through some of the help topics and found one that worked for my problem.

But now have a new problem. I have two forms linked together and wanted to populate the feild of the second form with the feild value of the main form. I used this in the feilds control source ( =Forms![Trusses By Type Table1]!TrussID)
It works great but now when i close the child form after i have entered my records to go back to the main form. I went back to see if it worked and the records after i made the change disapear. But the values that i typed in still get put into the underlying table. Can anyone help with this.

I am new but learning fast, but there are somethings i am missing.

You have just made a text box equal to the value of the TrussID, you haven't tied it to the appropriate field in the second form.

Cut this piece of code form the Source property and Paste it into the Default Value.

The make the Source equal to the field you want the value entered in.
