When a user double-clicks on a record in a subform,  I want a split form to open showing all the invoice records for that project but the top part showing the particular invoice that they clicked on. At the moment I have:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmInvoice", , , "[ProjectID]=" & Me.ProjectID

and this opens showing all the invoices for that project but the particular invoice they want is not showing in the top part. I want to reference the top part as something like

"[InvoiceID]=" & me.InvoiceID

Thanks

You can use this as your next command:

DoCmd.SearchForRecord acDataForm , "frmInvoice", acFirst , "[InvoiceID] = " & Me!InvoiceID & ""
