SubForm Problem

Using Access 97, I have created a main form using tab control pages. There are three underlying tables all based on the one primary key. I am attempting to insert two subforms into two different tab control pages. The problem is when I try to enter records, I receive this message "The LinkMasterFields property setting has produced this error: 'Ambiguous name detected: Last_record_click'". I get the same message if I try to use command buttons in the tab control page. What does this message mean given that the relationships between my tables could not be simpler?

'Ambiguous name detected' has nothing to do with tables or relationships. Go to Help, Find, Ambiguous name detected, and read the reasons (TMWWTP) for the error. Look in your modules for two or more occurances of 'Last_record_click' (I'm assuming it is the name of a Sub.

*TMWWTP = that Microsoft was willing to publish, since they often omit vital information from their documentation.
