I have a main form (datsheet view) and a subform(also dataseheet view)

Lets say I expand the main form and then expand the subform

When I now click OFF of the subform by clicking in the main form...what event is that?

Form unload?
Lost Focus?

Please clarify what is mean by "expand" the forms?

There may be a few events that may actually fire in this case (not just one):
(No in any particular order)
BeforeInsert
AfterInsert
BeforeUpdate
AfterUpdate
Unload
LostFocus
OnExit
OnError
...etc

...and depending on what happened while the form was opened, the order may change

To be sure, put a messagebox on all the form events to see which ones trigger for your specific environment, and each user scenario.

As always, specifying the need for this, and your ultimate goal here, ...is always a big help in getting you the most fitting solution.

Believe it or not...they cut us some slack and the programmers can leave an hour early today!

You just gave me a clearer understanding of the process.

I placed a messagebox on every type of event and walked my way through a series of issues. (Inherited)

This database has a load of VBA that switches back on itself and I'm removing duplicate code.

OK great.

Yeah, the Messagebox trick is what I use to look at all the events and when they fire, and under what circumstances.
