Cannot get Embedded Form to Allow Data Entry

I have a data entry form, which has another form embedded into it.  When I open the data entry form, I cannot get the embedded form to accept data entry.  I have done this before, and have compared a form in an earlier database with my new database forms.  I cannot find the setting that I must change in order to get it working as I want.  And now, I'm tired of spending too much time trying to figure it out!!  Can someone help me?

Hi PHS_IT,
Make sure you've got AllowAditions & AllowEdits set to True
Good Luck!

Make sure that subform (embedded form) has a recordsource that is updatable.  If it uses a query that has multiple tables, or if it queries the same table(s) as your main form, this may not be the case.

The settings should be on the SUB-form (AllowEdits = True, and AllowAdditions = True)  Just wanted to make sure that you had those set on the Sub-form (it was not clear from either the suggestion or your response, that the settings were for the Sub-form, itrself)
