i have a sub form that i use as a list to pick from to fill the fields in the main form.  i had it working using this.......
Private Sub cardItem_GotFocus()
Me.Parent.cardID = Me.cardID
Me.Parent.cardItem = Me.cardItem
End Sub
i needed to change the order of the columns in the subform datasheet view and had lots of trouble.  i finely just cut the fields i wanted to move to the end of the datasheet and then just re-pasted them.  that worked to get the order of columns correct but now the above code doesnt want to work anymore.  i have no clue how to fix this problem.
any ideas?

Do you get any error messages?
Ensure the Control Names haven't changed.
Ensure the Even Procedures are still set.
Put a break point (F9) on the first line of code and test it to see if it is running.

error is "cant assign a value to this object"  i hit debug and it brings me to this line..
Me.Parent.cardID = Me.cardID

"how do i ensure event procedures are still set?" you can see this in the properties sheet.

With regards to the error then please check that Me.Parent.cardID has either a field as the control source or no control source.

got it.  it was giving me the error because the subform first tab stop was the field that the code was running.  the forms loaded slower then the gotFocus ran.  so i took all the tab stops out and it doesnt error.  so problem fixed.  i also remade the subform so i could set the order of columns in datasheet view.  so thanks anyway.
