Since the properties belong to the contain object, there is no problem doing this.  I did it on a project a long time ago.

Me.sfmContain.LinkMasterFields= "Myfield"
Me.sfmContainer.LinkChildFields= "MyOtherField"

sorry, the subform container object should be the same name in both lines of code

sfmcontainer

You have access to these values with:

Forms!FormName.form!sfmName.LinkMasterFields = <Enter Value>

Forms!FormName.form!sfmName.LinkChildFields = <Enter Value>

This would not work on ONFORMAT or ONOPEN
events.

 If Not IsNull(PrevBAC) Then
    qrySub1686OwnershipPrior.LinkMasterFields = "PrevLocPoint;PrevPlanNumber;FileDate"
    qrySub1686OwnershipPrior.LinkChildFields = "LocationPoint;PlanNumber;filedate"
 Else
    qrySub1686OwnershipPrior.LinkMasterFields = "LocationPoint;PlanNumber;filedate"
    qrySub1686OwnershipPrior.LinkChildFields = "LocationPoint;PlanNumber;filedate"
 End If

If I convert the report into a look alike FORM then, that will add to much work. If that is the only soultion I will think about going that way.

Change:
Forms!FormName.form!sfmName.LinkMasterFields = <Enter Value>

Forms!FormName.form!sfmName.LinkChildFields = <Enter Value>

to:
Reports!ReportName.report!srptName.LinkMasterFields = <Enter Value>

Reports!ReportName.report!srptName.LinkChildFields = <Enter Value>

srptName is the subreport name
