Scroll - Multiple Subform in Main form

Hi,

i have 3 sub forms in my main form in a continuous form mode. Currently i am having the vertical scroll bars on the sub forms turned on such that i can scroll down for more records. I there any possible way to have the vertical scroll on the main form linked to the sub form and i would not be able to see the vertical scroll bars on each of the three sub forms

Your help on this is appreciated

Do you mean you want to "scroll" on your mainform, and have the actual "scroll" process work on your subforms? If so, then not with the builtin Access scrollbars. You might be able to do with a 3rd party control, but I'm not sure how well the implementation would work.

Here's an interesting discussion on the link below similar to what you want. You might get an idea from it.

 Just to be clear; the subforms are only showing records for the currently selected main form correct?

Just to be clear, "Scrolling" (via the scrollbar) in a form does not necessarily move you through the records (Select each record as you scroll), ...it simply lets your View the other records as you scroll.

This means that if you select the first record, then use the scroll bar to move down, you will still only have the first record selected, but you can scroll down and see the other records.
Hence the main form record will not change, thus not triggering a change in the subform.

Using the arrow keys (Not the scrollbar) to Scroll (move through) the records is another story, ...as this will "Change" (Select) the records as your scroll, thus triggering a change in the main form and in the subform.,

But the key here is your form design,
In a general sense, you cannot have your main form "Scrollable" (Continuous, or Datasheet) if it contains a subform.

So this may all be a moot point.

Let's see what some other experts post...
