Hello,
I am opening the same .mdb file on two separate machines. One machine is 2003 version and the other 2007. When I choose a button on a switchboard to open a form in version 2003, it references the subform's event sequence first(even though rs![Argument] in switchboard routine points to main form The db was built on 2003), and this how I want it to run. However, on 2007 the parent form's Form_Load() Event is fired first which causes problems. Why does the sequence of events called differ from the same exact .mdb between versions 2003/2007?

Thank you

jcampanali,

First, I could not duplicate your issue.
I put message boxes on both forms Opening Event Sequences(Open,Load,Resize,Activate,Current)
In both Access 2003 and Access 2007 the subform events fired first.

What happens when you open this form *without* the switchboard in 2003 and 2007.

Good question, I'm not sure and since I've left work I will have to try on Monday. I thought it to be a 2007 issue. I even went so far as to change the form in the switchboard call to the subform and strangely it called only the Load event skippin over OnCurrent and returning to switchboard code. With 2003 both events are called. And really it's the OnCurrent Event I need to establish data in the subform. Could I call an event from another one as a possible solution?

Yes, but I am not sure it would work.
Because there is the Order of events (That I listed above) that *Must* be followed and cannot be changed.

OK, What I noticed when stepping through on the combo box's After_Update event for form  in question(completely by-passing Switchboard) is that the subforms load correctly on 2007 version, however switching from code view to form view shows a superimposed switchboard form(no stops were placed on switchboard). If I run through it in real time, no switchboard form appears, but the sub forms do not populate. I have to re-select from the combo box to populate subform data. After that it's fine as long as the form remains open.

Umm, no because in real time the subform does not populate due the fact that the 2007 version opens main form's events first instead of subform -which is what happens in 2003.

What happens if you make a simple Mainform/Subform in Access 2007, and put messages on all of the Opening events?
(Open, Load, Resize, Activate, Current)

.. a "Real" Mainform/Subform (Customers=Main, Orders=Sub)
