I think this one may be fairly simple.  I have a Main form and a Subform.  I select a Client on the Main Form and then create records related to the client in the Subform.  When I tab to the Subform, the page scrolls down and I can no longer see the client data at the top of the page - without scrolling back up.  I just want to keep that top portion of the Main form visible all the time, even as I scroll down through the subform.  Screenshot attached.

try adjusting your subform height (reduced the height)

 As Cap suggested, you'll need to modify the height of the main form or subform.

 There is no "Freeze" feature that would allow you to fix the top portion of the form in place.

 You could as an alternative move the controls of the main form into the forms header, but that involves a lot more work.
