I have a subform that is linked to a form by "PONO;" however, when I attempt to add a part number to the subform, I get the following error:

The object doesn't contain the Automation object 'PONO.'

You tried to run a Visual Basic procedure to set a property or method of an object.  However, the component doesn't make the property or method available for Automation operations.

Check the component's documentation for information on the properties and methods it makes available for Automation operations.

WHEW!  Help!!!

Sounds like the subform got messed up.

do you have other forms/subforms that work?

If so- I suspect you can fix it by deleting the subform, saving and re-adding the subform.

Are you sure that the mainform and/or subform contain the PONO field in their Recordsets? Can you post the .Recordsource of each here, along with the Master and Child linkfields?
