I have a subdatasheet/form that I'd like to automatically expand only when there are child records.  Does anyone know of a way to do this, maybe in code?  Form.Subdatasheet Expanded set to 'Yes' expands all of them...

you can use this command to expand the sub datasheet view

docmd.RunCommand acCmdSubdatasheetExpandAll

You'll have to test for data first and then run the code.

That was fast! Thanks.

This expands all SubDataSheets...  I'd like it to only expand the SubDatasheet if there is a child record.  Otherwise I get this unreadable mess with every parent record displaying sub record with new record line and headings.

Cheers

Check the number of records:

(Air code)

If me.subsheetname.form.recordcout >0 then
docmd.RunCommand acCmdSubdatasheetExpandAll
End if
