Making a sub-subform visible / invisible

Hi,

Form:                  groupSurvey
subform              survey
sub-subform:      subform_landSightings

I'm trying to make a sub sub-form visible / invisible from a button click on the main form.

subform_landSightings is a subform of survey.

The code below gives this       ERROR:  

Run time error 2455  
 You entered an expression that has an invalid reference to the property Form/Report

Thanks.

If Forms!surveyGroup.survey.Form.surveyTypeID.Value = 2 Then
     MsgBox "is Land"
 
    Me!survey.Form!subform_LandSightings.Form.Visible = True
 
Else
    Me!survey.Form!subform_LandSightings.Form.Visible = False
End IF

Open in new window

You were close.  The last 'Form' reference is not required.  That's only needed if you were referring to a control on the sub-sub form.

See this link for the ultimate reference in form/subform ... report/subreport systax
