Spell Check Subform

I have a command button that executes a spell check when clicked.   I also need to perform a spell check on a subform.

What is the proper syntax for calling the acCmdSpelling on the subform?

'Spell check on main form (works fine)
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSpelling

'Spell check on sub form (does NOT work)
Forms![frmTopicsOpen]![sfrmComments].Form.RunCommand acCmdSpelling

Thanks,
EEH

If you are wanting to run it from your button, what if you set focus on the subform first, and then said to run the spell check.
