Nested datasheet forms - can you nest parent to 2 peer children?

Hello - I need to set up a quick & dirty front end to verify some old data. (Access 2003)

The data is made up of projects, splitting off to multiple funding releases, AND multiple work orders.

I tried setting up nested datasheet view forms, but it looks like a parent datasheet view form will only handle one datasheet view subform.

Anybody know of a way around this?

have you tried using a Main single form and two datasheet subform

Yes, all spec'd as datasheet view; when I expand on a given row in the main form, it only displays the 1st subform, even if there are related records that should appear in the 2nd subform.

<it only displays the 1st subform>

oh.. you are referring to subDatasheet, well most developers disable this feature due to performance issue
see this link

Ok, I give up. I made them all separate datasheet view subforms on a main form (not nested subDatasheets), and it does what I need.

It may not have been quick, but it is still dirty...
