Referencing a subform control value in a second control's Row Source SELECT statement.

How do I reference a user input control on a sub form in a second control's Row Source SELECT statement?

What I have:

   SELECT Table1.Field1 FROM Table1 WHERE Table1.Field2=Me!SubForm1.form!Control1;

is not working as expected. The resulting list uses the Control1 value from the static form, not the currently entered value in Control1.

Hi zorvek,

Instead of Me! put in the whole form name.
Also after entering the value in Control1 do a requery.

Good Luck!
