Err:2455 invalid reference to the property Form

I have a form which contains a subform which has a control name of sub_Well_Details.  This subform contains some text boxes and also contains a continuous subform (sub_Well_Component_Details).  Note that these are the control names, not the name of the forms.

The main form contains a treeview, and if the node selected is at the second level, I make sub_Well_Details visible, but I would also like to disable the Edit and Remove buttons on sub_Well_Component_Details if there are no records in the 2nd level subform.  To do this I'm using the following code in the nodeclick event of the treeview control.

Dim frm as Form
set frm = me.sub_Well_Details.form.sub_Well_Component_Details.Form   <--- problem is here
frm.cmd_Remove.Enabled = frm.REcordsetclone.recordcount
frm.cmd_Edit.Enabled = frm.cmd_Remove.Enabled

but the line beginning "set frm = " is generating the 2455 error "You entered an expression that has an invalid reference to the property Form/Report."

I have compacted, decompiled, checked my references, but nothing I do has resolved this problem.  I know I have used this syntax before for refering to controls on forms and for setting references to forms.

I've also tried:

set frm = forms("frm_Well_Components").sub_Well_Details.form

and

set frm = form_frm_Well_Components.sub_Well_Details.form

Joe,

Have tried the above, but have not had the opportunity to import all objects into a new accdb yet (am babysitting the grand-children this week while their parents are on vacation).  Hope to get a chance to look at this later this week.

Is there any change that sub form object does not yet exist at the time the code is executed ?

How about this Dale:
 
With me.sub_Well_Details.form.sub_Well_Component_Details.Form   <--- problem is here
     .cmd_Remove.Enabled = .Recordsetclone.recordcount
     .cmd_Edit.Enabled = .cmd_Remove.Enabled
End With

Joe, I was unable to resolve this problem until I imported everything into a new accdb, so my project must have experienced some form of corruption.
