Microsoft Tech Support Couldn't Solve This...

Microsoft Technical Support could not solve this problem.  After talking to them for about an hour, they concluded my form must be corrupted, and that I need to delete it and rewrite it.  That's a lot of work.  So I thought I would see if anyone knows the answer to this before I spend the time recreating my form.  Here's my problem:

I think your problem is arising because you have some sub-forms that might be linked to info on another portion of the form that is getting changed when you move from the first record...see if this makes sense...
a single form with 6 tabs and 5 sub-forms
tab 1 has your basic person info...name, age(DOB), height, etc.
tab 2 has transportation info with a sub-form that links
      all the cars that the person on the main has
if you move the record on the first tab, then you are probably not getting the proper info in the sub-form, this might not be the proper sample but the situation might just be this cases..
if the data is not sensative (in other words = is it shareable), then I would be happy to help with a copy of the file...is it under or about 1MB

Chapie,

Thank you very much for your quick response.  Keeping your suggested answer in mind, I reviewed my application for subform problems and didn't find any.  (That doesn't mean there aren't any!)  I can send you the application for you to look at, but I would like you to know that it was written for, and is the property of, the Los Angeles City District Attorney's Office.  It cannot be  sold, or distributed in any manner, or shared with anyone whose intent is to sell or distribute it.  Are you agreeable to this?  If so, please tell me how or where to send the application.

Thanks.

hhmmm..legal jargon, should I get involved with this one??

I have no problem abidding by those restrictions, but you might want to save it as sort of a last resort...we'll see, there's probably one thing that I can can suggest as a trouble-shooting method I don't know if you'd have used this or not, but in order to test the possible problem I suggested would be to create a button that has a debug method to reveal the data from the other sub-forms and tabs, press the button with the debug window open and see what record all the forms are on, then move to the next record and see if all or part of the data moves

Chapie,

Upon further review, your first answer was right on.  I did have some code on the subform that was being "orphaned" when I deleted the person record on the main form.

Thanks a million (ah, 200).
