acCmdFormView for datasheet

Good morning.

Here's my problem. I have a form "frmDataEntry" that has a subform on it called "fsubCalibration". The subforms default view is datasheet, but all views are set as available in the properties.

I want to creat a button on the main form with the onclick event or a double click event on the subforms field memProcedure that runs the DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdFormView action.

Specifically I want to make it easy for the user to change the subform from datasheet to form (note: I have the start up settings locking menus and right clicks down).

Ive tried the button by settinng the focus to the subform and running the cmd.
Ive also tried getting several events to fire on the field memProcedure in the subform unsucessfully.

Anyone have any suggestions. I am sure this is pretty simply.

thanks!!!

Set the focus on the subform control first ...
Make sure that you are using the name of the subform control and not the name of the subform itself.

Me.SubformControlName.SetFocus
Application.RunCommand acCmdSubformDatasheetView

did you end up using acCmdSubformDatasheet or acCmdSubformDatasheetView?

After playing with this a bit I found that using acCmdSubformDatasheet is really a toggle between form and datasheet view types and acCmdSubformDatasheetView will only change it to datasheet.

Ahhh, thought it was strange it would change back and forth. But hey that may be better. Otherwise I would have to create a separate event or button for changing it back
