Can I use the same recordset in different subforms?
Posted on 2007-11-23
I have a form with a tab control and on each tab page there is a subform. Each subform uses the same table, but displays the data in a different way and using a different subset (to be more specific: customers, suppliers and prospects are all stored in the same table, but each tab shows only the relevant subset).
The way it works now is that each subform has its own record source and therefore (I suppose) the table is transferred three times over the local network. As it is a big table and a busy network, I was wondering if this could be done more efficient.
Would it be possible to load the table in the parent form and link the subforms tot this recordset? Or is there some other smart solution?
