asked on

defining a field from a form in SQL

I have a form, [EOS Ranking], which has a command button to call for another form.  I set the record based on the filter criteria [item_number]

I had to change my subform and it now it too  includes a field [item_number] as well so, where this string worked before, it no longer does.

DoCmd.OpenForm "sfrm_sales_xref_data", WhereCondition:="Item_Number = '" & [ITEM_NUMBER] & "'"

I think I need to define that [item_number] is coming from my primary form [EOS Ranking]

How would I rewrite my script?

If this line of code is inside the subform, you could also use the Parent keyword to refer to the main form:
DoCmd.OpenForm "sfrm_sales_xref_data", WhereCondition:="Item_Number = '" & Parent.[ITEM_NUMBER] & "'"
