Referencing controls on a 2010 Navigation Form

I have an old .mdb that I am attempting to upgrade.  I have imported all of what I feel are the necessary tables, queries, forms, reports, and modules into a new .accdb database.  I have also incorporated several of the forms into a Navigational Form (frmNavigation; verticle tabs left style).  One of the forms ([Report Dates Entry Form] has vba code attached to a command button that needs to set the value of a date variable to the value of another control ([EndDate]) on the form.  In the old line of code this was accomplished by :

dteWeekEnd = Forms![Report Dates Entry Form]![EndDate].Value

After doing some reading I thought the that once the form was placed in the Navigation Form (attached to NavigationButton9) that the proper syntax would be:

dteWeekEnd = Forms![frmNavigation]![NavigationButton9].[Form]![EndDate].Value

But now I get an error stating "Object doesn't support this property or method
What am I doing wrong?

When I tried the first suggestion I get an error stating that "Access can't find the field 'Report Dates Entry Form'"

I don't understand the second statement....do you mean the control on the Navigation Form?  NavigationButton9 ?

I've already tried:
dteWeekEnd = Forms![frmNavigation]![NavigationButton9].[Form]![EndDate].Value

which didn't work either...I don't really think I understand which control you're referring to by 'Subform control name'
