Hi,

I have a subform. i want to change the sourceobject of the subform to a new recordset. In other words i want to show the records from a new recordset in the subform. But when i tried to change the sourceobject of subform it gave me an error "the setting you entered isn't valid for this property".  Is there any way to do so.
My emailid is agarwalp@lucent.com

For example; in the click event of a button on the main form:
Us e you own names for mysubformctl, and your own sql statement.


Dim strsql
strsql = "Select * from mytable where thisfield >5"
me.mysubformctl.form.recordsource = strsql

or if you have already defined the queries to use on a subform:


recordsource = "MyQuery"
requery 'repopulate the form with the new data
