Linking a Subform to an Unbound Main form
Posted on 2006-06-19
I am working in MS Access 2000, and I am trying to get a subForm (frmPublication) to link to the Main Form (frmAddProject).
frmAddProject is an unbound form, and it has a combobox (cmbPubID) that selects the publication ID. On the AfterUpdate of cmbPubID, I would like the subform to change the selected record to match the one in cmbPubID.
When I try to click "Link Master Fields" or "Link Child Fields" on the subform, I get an error:
"Can't build a link between unbound forms."
