Problem with Drag-N-Dropper - Drop Control not found

I have just started working with the Drag-N-Dropper package from Peters Software (pretty amazing stuff. BTW).
I am trying to drag a record from one continuous subform to a field on another continuous subform, both of which are on the same form. Everything seems to be working OK, except that the “Drop Control” is not being found. Actually what happens is the process defaults to the last control on the continuous subform, rather than the actual control the 'MouseUp' is being executed over. I am hoping someone may have some hints on why this might be. Any help offered would be most appreciated.
I am working in Access 2007.
Thanks,
Tod

Hate to say this, but ... you will really need to email Peter on this ... and he usually does respond.  As you've probably noticed, that code is quite complex ...

I already sent him an email. Feeling a little anxious because I've committed to this approach by now, and need to have some basic functionality by COB tomorrow.

Interesting: When I took the two subforms and opened them as separate forms (with no other changes), the drop control was corectly identified.

Peter is in Los Angeles CA ... and I do know he is very busy. But, should respond.

Peter got back to me within a few hours. The problem appears to be resolved for now.
As mentioned above, I had taken the two subforms in question (that were on the same form), and opened then as two separate forms. I made no code changes. In this mode, the drop control was identified correctly when I dragged from one form to the other. When I went to create an example to send to Peter, I took those two forms, added them to another form as subforms, and the drag and drop worked. That is to say, I’ve now gotten to the point where the message generated by your provided custom function is returning the correct information about the dragged and dropped controls.
I like the utility. I feel my money has been well spent.

I glad that Peter did get back to you. Cool!

Yes ... the price for any of his apps is inconsequential ...
