I have a button that opens a new form, inserts a clientID and saves the record to show the InvoiceID. This does not seem to be enough for the subform as when I try to add a subform record it works until I try to requery the main form using Forms![frmInvoices].Requery. This brings the entire form to a new record.

Any ideas?


DoCmd.OpenForm "frmInvoices", acNormal, , , acFormAdd
Forms![frmInvoices]![ClientID] = Me.ClientID

Forms![frmInvoices].Refresh
Forms![frmInvoices].Dirty = False

Open in new window

In my response to your previous post, I removed the "Refresh" line, as it will do nothing for a new record, get rid of it.

In your previous post, you said nothing about a "sub-form", the code you provided above opens "another" form, not a sub-form.

Please explain (no code) what you want to do with this 'pop-up' data entry form "frmInvoices".  From your previous post, I assumed that you wanted to create a new record and save it, but I was a bit surprised that you wanted to save it without entering any of the invoice information.

ok, hope this is clearer....
I create a new invoice by choosing a client in a popup window. The new invoice is created and the clientID is inserted. Works fiine up to here. In the subform I add products, prices, etc. This also works...until the after update which triggers an sp to total the products and insert/update main form with totals. If I start the procedure with a main form requery this doesn't work as it shows the InvoiceID as Null.

I did however just get it to work by switching from Requery to refresh. So I suppose I have the solution it would however be nice to better understand the workings of a new record and why requery would have this behaviour.
