The form and subform are not linking.  

See data model and sample database for object relationship.

I want employees to show up on main table and their associated paces on the subform.

In sample database I gave first example actual links in data but it's not displaying on the forms.

I tried to follow that but I don't know what I'm missing.  I supplied a sample database, could you take a quick look?

I think its in assigning the "Link Child Fields" and "Link Master Fields" where I'm messing up.

My scenario is slightly different than the link previded because I have a junction table between the two tables to eliminated my many-to-many relationship

Reviewed sample database myself and realized the relationship was incorrect on the query.
