Hi Experts,

I am stuck and need some help. I have an MS Access form I will call the parent form. In its detail section I have two subforms I will call the header subform and the detail subform.

The problem I am having trouble understanding is this: When I INSERT a brand new record in my header subform, the code in its AfterUpdate event executes prior to the code in its AfterInsert event. This does not sound right to me.

Any help or insight would be appreciated.
