Access - Tabbed Form - Tab with multiple subforms - Data doesn't appear

wlwebb asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have created a main form that had 4 subforms on it.  I had all those subforms working and populating data based upon a listbox selection the user made.  I added tab control to that form and cut copy and pasted the working listbox as well as the subforms off of the main form and pasted them onto the tab controls.  

Now my subforms don't show any data.  

When I open the subform  by itself and make a listbox selection on the newly tabbed form's listbox that actual subform does show the correct data (still nothing on the Main form tab.

Any suggestions on where to begin looking for my error?
