I am trying to requery for the combo box in another form.

I have two forms.
frmPublication/frmqryAffiliatiion_subform
frmAuthor

When I adda new record in the frmAuthor, I want to requery the combo box in the subform of the frmPublication.

I don't see the control name for the combo box in the subform.
It is tied to the AuthorID so I am using the AuthorID as the controlID.

The subform has several textboxes to display the fields. I converted the textbox to a combo box.


How can I reference the combo box of subform in another form?

There is no field named "Forms!frmPublication.[frmqryAffiliation subform].Form.AuthorID in the current record.
