sub form disappears

I have a subform embedded on a main form via a subform control. The subform used to have it's default view set to datasheet. In the form designer, i changed  default view of the subform itself (not the wrapping control) to continuous and it disappeared from view on the main form. I have two other subforms on the main form and they were defaulting to datasheet view too and they still show up. So the change of the one subform from datasheet to continuous did something weird that I don't know about

Try opening the subform from the database window without the Main form to see what happens.

Hi Bob,

Check the  master/child Links that you're not filtering to something that doesn't exist

Other things to try:

1. Run the Compact/Repair utility
2. Rebuild the subform.
3. Decompile the DB (http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/decompile.htm)

I wiped out the subform and recreated it with a subform control, and set the links up and now it shows. Weird.

You might have missed something when you first created it or the first form was corrupt.
