sort the record source for the subform as descending for the two fields you are concerned with then to the properties for the query and set Top Values to 5

Change the recordsource of the subform to a query that looks like:

SELECT Top 5 FWarehouse, [Fiscal Year], [Week ID], Cases, Weight, XDock
FROM yourTable
WHERE [FWarehouse] = Forms!yourFormName.txtFWareHouse

Then make sure that the form and subform are not linked via a master/child relationship.
Finally, set the main forms Current event to look like:

Private Sub Form_Current

    me.SubformControlName.Form.Requery

End Sub
