Command Button to run query and refresh subform isnt working:

I have two forms (they are essentially the same, just sized differently for different size computer screens):
Frm_Value_Request_Archive
Frm_Value Request_Archive1

The subform on each of these forms is the same:
SF_Value_Request_Arvhice

When I click on the RnRfrshQry command button in the second example below, I get this error message:
Enter Parameter Value: Forms!frm_Value_Request_Archive!Text24

The command button for frm_Value_Request_Archive DOES WORK:
Frm_Value_Request_Archive

Private Sub cmd_refresh_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmd_refresh_Click

    Dim stDocName As String

    stDocName = "qry_update_Value_Request_Archive"
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.OpenQuery stDocName, acNormal, acEdit
    [frm_Value_Request_Archive subform].Form.Requery
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
Exit_cmd_refresh_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_cmd_refresh_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmd_refresh_Click
   
End Sub


For this form (Value_Request_Archive1) the command button DOESNT work:

Private Sub RnRfrshQry_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_RnRfrshQry_Click

    Dim stDocName As String

    stDocName = "qry_update_Value_Request_Archive"
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.OpenQuery stDocName, acNormal, acEdit
    [frm_Value_Request_Archive1 subform].Form.Requery
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
Exit_RnRfrshQry_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_RnRfrshQry_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_RnRfrshQry_Click
   
End Sub

Does the Query_update_Value_request_archive query pick up the value from  Forms!frm_Value_Request_Archive!Text24?  If it does then this will only work when form  frm_Value_Request_Archive is open, not when form  frm_Value_Request_Archive1 is open.  One way around this would be to duplicate the query under a new name (say Query_update_Value_request_archive1 and make this pick up the parameter value from Forms!frm_Value_Request_Archive1!Text24 (note the 1 in the form name) and change the VBA on the button on frm_Value_Request_Archive1 to run the new query.

open Value_Request_Archive1 in design view
select the outer part of the subform
hit F4 to open the property sheet
select the Data tab
  * see what is in the Source Object
 
  copy and post  here

select the Other tab
  * see what is in the Name

  copy and post  here

The Source Object is the same for both forms:
SF_Value_Request_Archive

Sorry, I misspelled the SF in the text of my original request - it should read
"The subform on each of these forms is the same:
SF_Value_Request_Archive"

Thank you so much - I'm working with queries that I didn't design - it's pretty simple, but I didn't think of this!
