Return the name of the active/with focus subform

Good afternoon

I am trying to return the name of the active form, where the form in question is a sub form. Code for example:
Set frmCurrentForm = Screen.ActiveForm

Using Screen.ActiveForm or Me when trying to return the name of a subform actually returns the name of the parent form. Is there a way to return the name of just the sub form? and is there away to name the parent forms seperately (especially if there are a number of nested subforms).

True, using Screen.ActiveForm will display the parent, but from the subform itself, you can just us

If the code is in the subform, then will return the name of the subform.

If you are running code in a standard module you do things like:

Forms!orders1.ActiveControl.Name      to get the name of the subform control on th main form
Forms!orders1.ActiveControl.Form.Name     to get the name of the subform

What, exactly, are you trying to do with the reference to your subform? A subform is actually a member of the Controls collection of the parent form, and you should always get a handel to the subform through the parentform, as peter suggests.
