Subforms on a Mainform

P: 78
I have a form that is used for input. All my tables (the ones in question anyways) are 1:1 linked by [BWA_ID]. The problem I am having is too many fields error. I have decided to break the input down into a few subforms. My desired result is something like this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Main Form
  2.   Sub Form 1
  3.   Sub Form 2
  4.   Sub Form 3
  5.   ect.
The problem I am having is dealing with the active record. All the subforms are independant of the main form. If I use the record navigation on the main form, it changes the record on the main form and not on any on the subforms. I was wondering how I could tie these in to operate as one giant form?

Found my own answer.

You must set the Link Child Fields and Link Master Fields to a common field such as a primary key.

Thanks to NeoPa for a previous post which helped me to discover the answer.
