Need to display a single main form with 48 subforms

P: n/a
I need to display a main form with 48 identical subforms. 6 columns with
8 rows.

I set up a separate query for each subform, identical in structure and
underlying data except the criteria in two fields is different for each.
(ie Row and Column id fields).

I am able to select data in each subform from combo box lists, then on
after update event I want to store data in a master underlying
transaction table, both when each subform is updated individually as
well as when a single cmd button in the parent form is clicked to update
all data from all subforms.

Any ideas or suggestions on code to use, as MS Access 2002, I have here,
will only allow 42 simutaneous queries; so it limits effectiveness.

Thanks

Why?

The concept of making a mountain our of a molehill comes to mind.

I'll bet you've been as busy as a beaver.

Microsoft didn't anticipate you.

Did you know you can do something like
Me.Recordsource = QueryName
or
Me.Recordsource = "Select * From TableName Where Status = 'D'"
?

It almost sounds like you are using the same table, the only thing being
different is some criteria. You could use the command
Me.Filter = "Status = 'D'"
Me.FilterOn = True
and filter. So you could have a listbox, select a value in the listbox,
and filter as necessary?

At best I might have 2 forms; main transation and then one to display
the data to update the main transaction table. Then use filters to
display the data.
Thanks
You're welcome.
