Passing subform values to a parameter query

I have a subform that passes two dates into a criteria expression in my query. I keep getting prompted for parameter entries for both dates.

These are the forms I'm using...

frmReports: is the main form
frmSubReports: is the name of the subform control on the main form
frmSubReportsDates: is the name of the subform that is called and appears in the the subform control
ctrFromDate and ctrToDate: the names of the DTPicker controls contained in frmSubReportsDates

Originally, I was testing with just the subform and everything seemed ok.

I used this...

Between [Forms]![frmSubReportsDates].[ctrFromDate] And [Forms]![frmSubReportsDates].[ctrToDate]

Once I opened up the main form containing the subform then I started to receive the prompts asking to enter parameter values.

I have since modified the query expession to this...

Between [forms]![frmReports].[frmSubFormReports].[Form]![frmSubReportsDates].[ctrFromDate] And [forms]![frmReports].[frmSubFormReports].[Form]![frmSubReportsDates].[ctrToDate]

This is where I'm stuck. Any suggestions?

[forms]![frmReports].[frmSubFormReports].[Form]![frmSubReportsDates].[ctrFromDate]

you need to use the name of the subform control and not the name of the embedded form

[Forms]![frmReports].[childReports].[Form].[childDates].[Form].[ctrFromDate]

check the . and ! s

Oops! I forgot to follow up on this thread.

Steve, your suggestion pointed me in the right direction.

The final solution was as follows:

Between [Forms]![frmReports]![ChildReports].[Form]![ctrFromDate] And [Forms]![frmReports]![ChildReports].[Form]![ctrToDate]

Thanks for your help.
