I have a Form I will call frm1
I have a subform on that form I will call sfrm1

On sfrm1, I have the following code:

Public Sub BookmarkLine()

Dim vLine As Long
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

vLine = Me.[Line_No]
Me.Requery
Set rs = Me.RecordsetClone
rs.FindFirst "[Line_No]=" & vLine
Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark

End Sub


I need to call BookmarkLine(), from another standalone form I will call frm2.  Basically, when a command button on frm2 is clicked, I need it to call BookmarkLine()

Please help with the synatax of the command button to make the call.   Thanks

First, change
Public Sub BookmarkLine() and End Sub

to

Public Function BookmarkLine()
End Function

Then, call like this

Form_YourActualSubformNameHere.BookmarkLine

Be sure YourActualSubformNameHere is the name of the 'subform' as it appears in the database window (or Navigation pane)
