how to handle vba events in a subform integrated with a main form

I have a field called SN in my main form.  In the after update event of this field, I run some code and it works well.  I also have a subform in this main form.  In this subform I have some code that opens a recordset and populates the SN textbox in my main form.  That works well as well.  The only problem is that the coding behind the SN field's afterupdate event is never triggered.  

How can I execute the coding in the SN afterupdate event in the main form once my subform populates this SN field?
