Form/Subform reference not working

I have a Form/Subform combo with a dropdown box on my form that references a column of a table.  In the subform, when the user selects the value on the form, I want that same value to show in a textbox (or a dropdown) in my subform.  

I tried making the rowsource [Forms]![Form2]![Combo1] but this seems to do nothing.  Please help.

Thanks

Unless you refresh or requery that control or the subform in the AfterUpdate event, nothing will happen in the subform.

The other method would be to use the AfterUpdate event of the main form combo to push the data to the subform control, like:

Private Sub combo1_AfterUpdate

    me!subformcontrolname!form.textboxname = me.combo1

End Sub
