Hello All

Have a form with several Subforms.  I have been using variables to cycle through copying info within forms but this one is a variable that copies info from one form to several  subforms.  

I know I can use Me("xxxx" & i) = Me("xxx" & i+1) within a form but can you do that from a Form to a Subform?

I have tried this and it does not like my Syntax.    I get Run-Time Error '2465' Can't fine the field '|' referred to in your expression???????


My code is
                ["sfrm_ctl_Addr" & x].Form![txtStreetName] = Me("txtStreet" & (Format(x, "00")))

Have you tried this?


Me.SubformControlName.Form("xxxx" & i) = Me("xxx" & i+1)

Maybe this...

                Me.Controls("sfrm_ctl_Addr" & x).Form![txtStreetName] = Me("txtStreet" & (Format(x, "00")))
