jfgk,
Is the subform in FORM  or Datasheet/Continuous, also are there other fields on the subform that need data before the record can be saved, finally can the user cancel saving the record after clicking the button.

The reason I ask these are to better help understand the scenerio.

It is possible to docmd.gotorecord, , nacnewrec on the subform and then set the value by referencing the listbox value, however knowing the structure of the subform makes a big difference
