Hi EE,

Am very new to datasheets.

In the near future i should ask how to use datasheets to drill down.

In the meantime asking about having more than one subform on a mainform.
Each subform would contain a datasheet.

header section - placed a datasheet to show totals (from sql: COUNT)
detail   section - placed a datasheet to show students that reflect the total
                           the detail section datasheet opens with default record source of
                           a query:  qp_050_Discoverer_SortByLNAME

i thought, that on on click event of a column in header section datasheet, would
populate the detail section datasheet with appropriate query name.

So my question is

 the record navigators on the detail datasheet are not showing...how can they be made
    to show

btw, i hid the record navigators on the header section datasheet, and that works ok.

tx for your ideas, sandra

Unfortunately you will not see anything inserted into the header or footer of a form in "Datasheet" view.

Try creating a "continuous" subform
(in the wizard select "tabular" View)
...then this is possible...

Hi Jeff,

tx.... ok

i just wanted to show total number of records, not so much for inserting records

when opening a query which i guess is in datasheet view, you can see the the
navigation buttons there...

also, i use a form as a "menu" screen, and have experimented with
     docmd.OpenQuery

the query opens with the navigation row


so i was hoping the same would apply when i create
a datasheet form from scratch

however, i googled what you just wrote, and i see others who explain that it cannot
be viewed in datasheet view...

tx so much, s

Yes, but that is with a *query*.
You are using it as a *Form* where you had turned off the Navigation button in the Form properties anyway...

There is no way to turn off the navigation button in a raw query, just like there is no way to turn them off in a raw table.
