I want to place a toogle-button on the mainform to toggle the subform views.
How can I advise the form to switch the view via VBA?

You can try this

Me.mysubform.form.CurrentView = myviewno

where mysubform = name of your subform
and myviewno is a number to identify what view u want

DesignView is view number 0
Form View is 1
Datashee view is 2

ok, it seems CurrentView is a readonly property, so Im thinking u have to open form in Design mode, then change view, then reopen

A non-code solution would be to use a tab control with a subform per page and let the tabs work as "toggle button"

try this

say you had a button on your mainform called cmdToggleView

private sub cmdToggleView_Click

    Me.mysubform.SetFocus
    If Me.mysubform.Form.CurrentView = 1 Then DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSubformDatasheetView Else DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSubformFormView

end sub


set focus to subform called  mysubform
if current view is form view then change to datasheet else change to form

If I remember correctly you don't need to do the test the CurrentView as setting to acCmdSubformDatasheetView will actually toggle between the 2 view types for you.
