MS Access: Subform Referencing Subform

Posted on 2012-12-25
Last Modified: 2012-12-25

I have an MS Access 2007 form with two subforms.

I would like the subform 2 results to be filtered based on the selection in subform 1. I've tried implementing a proposed solution with an unbound text box, but I couldn't get it to work.

Attached is a screenshot explaining what I would like to do, along with a sample database.

It would be great if you could help, then I can implement in my live database.
