I am learning the basics of VBA.

I have a main form: frm_material_stock_groups and a subform: frm_material_group_subform


upon exiting a field  on the main form I want to go to a control on the subform named Material_Group_Description and i have tried the following line of code which does not work:

 DoCmd.GoToControl (Me!frm_material_group_subform.Form!Material_Group_Description)

Can anyone help?

Hello supergooner,

To go to a control on a subform you have to do it in two steps.

Me!subformcontrolname.setfocus
me!subformcontrolname.Form!Controlname.setfocus


So in your case, assuming the subform control has the same name as the subform:

me!frm_material_group_subform.setfocus
me!frm_material_group_subform.form!Material_Group_Description.setfocus
