I have a form that's in datasheet view
It has a subform also in datasheet view

The subform and parent form both have a column txtMyId

What I want to do is if Me.txtMyId <> Me.Parent.txtMyId then

Hide entire data row if possible


I tried testing with the following code and an extra unbound column to update
But it comes back with everything "Matches" which I KNOW isn't correct

Do I need some kind of "For Each?"

I can do that in .Net easily

    If Me.txtMyId = Me.Parent.txtMyId Then
        Me.txt2 = "Matches"
    Else
        Me.txt2 = "No Match"
    End If
