Form works okay on its own - but konks out as a Subform

I have a form that works just fine when executed on its own.  It simply uses an Empl ID that is entered and then retrieves rows from a job history table after a button is clicked.  Let's call it frm_Job.  Then, I created a frm_Main with tabs, and used the Subform control to define frm_Job on the first tab as its Source Object.  Now when I enter in an Empl ID and click the button on frm_Job - it doesn't work.  When the button is clicked, it prompts me to "Enter Parameter Value ?" for the query.  If I do that - it works okay...so it doesn't seem to be picking up the entry off of the Subform field.  Weird.  As I said, if I open the frm_Job directly, it runs fine.  Is there anyone who can clarify what's going on here?  (I'll return to this after the weekend - I'm braindead now, but will award points based on first correct response.  TIA!)
