Setfocus using Navigation form

I developed a group of forms that I then moved into a Navigation Form. When testing this code from just the original form (not in the Navigation form) it worked fine:

Private Sub StopField_Enter()
Forms!BarQCProdForms!InspectorName.SetFocus
End Sub

The Form name is BarQCProdForms and the field I set the focus to is InspectorName

My Navigation form name is E1E2Forms and now the BarQCProdForms is within that.

When I test while in the Navigation form I get the error message :

Run-time error ‘2465”:
Microsoft Access can’t find the field ‘InspectorName’ referred to in your expression.

I tried several things including changing BarQCProdForms to E1E2Forms within the Forms! Statement.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it did not work either for my particular case. But! I did find a much simple solution that I kick myself for not thinking to use before"

Me.InspectorName.SetFocus

duh!

Sometimes, just asking the question forces us to rethink the problem...

I see, I read it as being set from the parent form, not within the subform.  Looking for a problem when there wasn't one lol
