I have three tables:

Clients, who have many
Files which each have many
Invoices.

The tables are therefore linked that way.

I want to have cleints as the main form
That form will be tabbed.
On the first tab will be a Files. I have had no problem in building the subform
On the second tab will be invoices
What i need is the best way to do this:
To click on a File in the subform (first tab) and go to the corresponding Invoices on the next tab, and to be able to create a new invoice ID etc
There would there for be a clickable link from the (say) file ID to the invoices for that file.

If the file is only single selection then just create  invoices and a Combo box to select with the files corresponding to the client in the  third tab if it is ok (if the files are not many)  or what you think is also nice.

that upload seems a bit problematic but i cant work out why...

This is what im trying to understand:

If I have a table/form with clients ID then a sub form to reflect one client to many files, can i then make a sub sub form with one file to may invoices and then retain the link to the same client.
In other words for that one client with many files, when you select a "file' will the invoices sub sub form show the invoices for that selected file.

Can this be done with a sub sub form and how is it linked properly to the forms "above"

I have some familiarity with Master and Child links.

 I have sorted it, I think. In retrospect the sample I uploaded was not too good and this may have caused it to behave oddly.

I wont bother you with the details.

I have done some further work on my own and having found a good example  i used an intermediate text box as a master and child link between two tabbed forms

I now have a much better understanding of sub forms, and sub sub forms.

Thanks for your help guys
