I've set up a query which includes the totals row and then have connected it to a form. I then want to place a subform on this form which will have its recordsource from another query but with refers to the active form ie. [forms]![frmQualityApack]![proj_eng] which will then show associated information. I get the following error
You can't use a pass through query or non fixed column crossquery as a record source for a subform or subreport.
Before you bind the subform or subreport to a crosstab query, set the query columnheadings property.
any ideas..probably needs more info

Cheers

Is it a pass-through query?  If so your probably sending it a variable name or form variable.  Pass-through queries must have a value passed in it not a variable.

its not a pass through query either...all it is is a normal query with the total row inserted ie click view then totals,
 it doesn't require headings as it not a crosstab query...
I'm trying to add a subform to show related records to the query.
To explain more...the original query shows the amount of sites a person engineers along with figures such as total hours per week assigned, actual hours worked and percentages..this then translates to a form and is proving no problem..the error occurs when i trying to add the subform...the error also occurs when i put [enter week number] on a datepart field..it doesn't allow the user to input the week, it works ok on running the query but not through the form...hope this explains a bit better

Do not use the SQL for the solution, use the form, ie, remove the total and use a generic SELECT Statement.  How you use the form to solve the solution is up to you in that you can use Code or an Expression.  Any problems display your Sequal Code in your reply.
