Update Subform when mainform info changes

P: n/a
I have a form "A" that is set on table vessel names. I have subform
"B" that is set on table vessel info.

I want form "B" to update based on what vessel I choose in form "A".

I know this is an easy one. :)

Make sure the sub-form's Child/Master link fields are set up correctly -
i.e., there has to be a linking field between the 2 forms like a Vessel
ID or name, etc.

To find the Child/Master link fields: display the master form's
Properties dialog box.
Click on the sub-form control.
Under the Data tab ensure the link field is in the "Link Child Fields"
and "Link Master Fields" fields.
If they are empty click the build button (the button with the 3 periods)
to the right of the fields to have a wizard suggest possible fields to
link on.
