How do I save a Subform design change via vba ?
Subform is Datasheet view, changes are made via vba, and I want to save these subform design changes.
The main code changes ConditionalFormatting on the subform, and it is these changes I want saved.
MS Access environemts 2003 and greater.

In general to save form changes, DoCmd.Save acForm,"frmName"

That works for the MainForm, but it's not working for the SubForm on the MainForm as the SubForm is only a object on the MainForm

You may let access help in saving the subform, by closing the main form:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.Close acForm, Forms!mainForm.Name, acSaveYes
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Sub

IMO, you'd be much better off running the code that changes the CF each time that Form is run instead of trying to save design changes at runtime. This will decompile your database, leaving it potentially more unstable. Granted you can Compile/Compact each time, but that's very intrusive. It also means you can't deploy a .mde file (which is the preferred format).
