Hello,

I'm trying to requery a subform two levels down from an onclose even on a popup form.
the rest of the onclose event is in a macro.
I would like it to be in vba, but for some reason my settempvars isn't working in vba, so i'm stuck with a macro.  (will be another question)

So for now, i'm using the macro to 'run code' ie. call a function in which I am trying to do the requery.

from ms help "
If you want to requery a control that isn't on the active object, you must use the Requery method in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module, not the Requery action or its corresponding Requery method of the DoCmd object. "

Info:
parent form : frmmain - view normal
subform 1   : frmtallysheetlist - view normal
subfrom 2   : sbfrmtallysheetlist - view datasheet
popupform  : frmtallysheetcreator

the event is triggered on the onclose event of the popup form.
subform 2 is a subform of subform 1 which is a subform of frmmain.
subform 2 's recordsource is a query.

My code below did not work.

Thank you.
Function refreshtallysheetlist()
On Error GoTo refresh_Err
 
frmtallysheetlist.Form!sbfrmtallysheetlist.Form.Requery
refresh_Exit:
    Exit Function

You need to reference the Forms collection and confirm that your control names are all the control names which may not be the same as the form name.

Forms!frmtallysheetlist.Form!sbfrmtallysheetlist.Form.Requery

Perfect thanks.
that subform control always gets me too.  It was named differently in order to change subforms.
Thanks.
