This must be easy ... but I have been struggling a bit.

1. I own 4 hotels (pretend!).  Hotel East, Hotel West, Hotel North, Hotel South

2. I analyse my hotel customers into sources such as, "Families", "Business", "Golf" etc.

3. At the end of each month I input the sales per source per hotel per week.  E.g. Hotel East has 33 bookings for Families in the week ending December 31st.

4. QUESTION: See frmShowSpecificBookings.   Firstly I choose a week at the top of the screen.  How to I show ONLY those weeks bookings in the subform below (frmBookings).

PS: I am fairly sure I use a query in the subform that has Forms!frmShowSpecificWeek!WeekID etc.    However, I have been unable to implement this fully.

1. Add the field tblWeeks.WeekID to qrySalesDetails

2. Add this code to the AfterUpdate of Combo0:

Me.frmBookings.Form.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM qrySalesDetails WHERE WeekID=" & Me.Combo0.Column(0)

That will show all records for all Hotels associated with that specific record in "tblWeeks".
