Blanks with 2 Combo Boxes Linked On A Contiuous Form

Hi EE,
I have a continuous subform that contains two combo boxes (cb) per record.  The first (cb) refers to an AcctID and the second (cb) to a SubAcctID, each bound by an ID, but displaying a description.  When the User selects an AcctID with the first (cb), the second will be filtered with only the SubAcctID's that have the selected AcctID. That part works fine. I am using the query criteria "[Forms]![frmMain]![frmSub].[Form]![AcctID]" to filter the SubAcctID (cb).  

The problem I am having is when a User goes to a new record the SubAcctID (cb) on the prior records goes blank if a different AcctID is selected, but not if the same AcctID is selected.  The ID's are still attached to the record, but the (cb) is displaying a blank.  I tried a requery,

Private Sub AcctID_AfterUpdate()
Me.SubAcctID.Requery

but it did not help. Any ideas where I am going wrong?
 
Thank you for your time,
Steve

Change:

Me.SubAcctID.Requery

to:

Me.Form.sfmName.Requery

sfmName being the actual name of your subform control.  If Requery does not work, try Refresh.

Hi GRayL,
Thanks for the reply.
I believe since "Private Sub AcctID_AfterUpdate()" is in the subform with the other control, i don't need to refer to the parent.
By the way, I fixed the issue by finding an article with a really cool trick that made it work like a charm.

Thank you anyway!
