Forms, tabular subform, tabular subsubform

I have a billing form with a single client for all items on the billing form.  On that billing form there are several invoices (kind of like a packing slip).  I use a tabular subform linked on the customer ID#.  That all works like a charm.  I also have another set of data that can have multiple results for one invoice on that billing item.  Ideally, I would like to have a tabular subsubform, in the tabular subform, in the main form.  For example, ABC co (Client- bililng form), orders widgets ( subform), these widgets come in several colors (subsubform).

Problem - Access doesn't like me to put a tabular subform in a tabular subform.  Is there something I can do here that will allow me to link the tabular subforms rather than inbed within each other?

Thanks

You can create subreports within reports.  Can you create a new report with Client billing form, orders, widget colors and tabluate in a 4th subreport?

Admitedly, I haven't done much with reports but have instead run things through forms.  I would prefer to use a form since I'm more familiar with them and have several macros and links set up with this existing form.

This was resolved by creating multiple queries which corresponded to each individual line on the form (6 queries).  The information was then pulled via text boxes onto the form.

boag2000 -

This is not what I was looking for.  I wanted to place a continuous form within a continuous form (aka tabular form).  You showed a good example of a tabbed form.

very different.
