I am trying to filter a combobox by running a query that contains the data from a combobox on the parent form. How can I reference the Parent forms combobox's value in my query?

Current Query to select all records
Select Part From PartList

I would like to be able to reference the combobox on the parent form so I can do this:
Select Part From PartList where ProductLine = 'PL'

I have attached a screenshot of the form. It is currently an Access 2010 ADP.

Select Part From PartList where ProductLine = Forms!ParentFormName.cboParts

The problem you will have is that the subform actually loads before the main form, so when the subform trys to evaluate this SQL statement, the Parent forms cboParts will not contain a value, and may generate an error.

For this reason, I generally leave the subforms SourceObject property blank, then in the Main forms "Load" event, I will set the subforms SourceObject.
