Parameter query in form asks for parameter twice.

Posted on 2003-12-09
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have a subform based on a parameter query. When I open the form, I am prompted for the parameter. When the form opens, I am prompted for the parameter again. How can I get this to work with just one prompt for the parameter?

I created the form and query as the link suggested. How do I get behind the O.K. button on the pop up form? There is not an event procedure for "on o.k", and you can't right click on it since you can't get to it in design mode.

 Also, the parameter dialogue box asks for:  forms!name of form!control. This doesn't look so good. Is there a way to change that?

Hi Kathleen,

Can you post the sql script from your parameter query for your original form please?

Hey, I fixed the sitution. I dropped the parameter query and added an unbound field to the main form which provides input to the subform. Sorry I didn't think of that sooner.

Hi Kathleen,

Anyway glad you got it solved!
