filter subform on unbound Combo box value access

I have a form with an unbound Combo Box that gets its value from a sql string,
I have a sub form SubfrmCAT_SUBResultsForAttrib that I want to filter by the value in the Combo box.  There is no parent child relationship between the sub form and the main form  because my controls are unbound, is there a way to filter the sub form as the value in the Combo box has a matching value in the sub form?

Main and Subform

Give this a try if subcat is numeric:

Me.SubfrmCAT_SUBResultsForAttrib.Form.Filter = "SUBCAT = " & Me.YourComboName
Me.SubfrmCAT_SUBResultsForAttrib.Form.FilterOn = True


If Subcat is TEXT:

Me.SubfrmCAT_SUBResultsForAttrib.Form.Filter = "SUBCAT = '" & Me.YourComboName  & "'"
Me.SubfrmCAT_SUBResultsForAttrib.Form.FilterOn = True


Use the AfterUpdate event of your combo box
