I have the most bizarre thing happening.  I have Form Called Sponsors with a Subform of Sponsor Addresses.  The parent /child link is correct.

If you open the Sponsor form, you see no addresses.

However, if you filter on the SponsorID, the addresses appear in the subform.

Mystery??? why?

Could not replicate...

Can you post a simple sample db that illustrates this issue?

Can you post more details please?

You may have to put an action after the parent form loads to refresh the subform.

Perhaps the Main form has a little corruption creeping in...
Have you tried compacting the db?

As another quick test, just make another Sponsors Main form, and drop in the subform.
What happens in the new main form?

I can't post the database, because it a regulatory database for government studies.  

I did try to put both a requery and refresh on the Main form on the Form_Activate.  It doesn't do anything.

I attached a document to show you what I see :

<I can't post the database,>
I never asked you to...
I only asked for :
"a simple sample db that illustrates this issue"

So as log as the simple sample exhibits the same issue, we can troubleshoot .

I also asked:
Have you tried compacting the db?
As another quick test, just make another Sponsors Main form, and drop in the subform.

We tried everything.  I even recreated the form.  I finally recreated in a different database, did an import and worked.... Been an Access programmer for 20 years and never saw this.... Very bizarre
