I have created a big form in access. It has 1 main form at header and 13 pages which host various subforms. I want to add few more subforms and with that the form width will become very big. Since I don’t want this to happen I decided to add tab control within a page.
I then quickly learned that tab control within a page is not possible. So I need to create a separate subform with tab control and then add such subform onto a page. Which promptly I did. So now in a way I want to show records only in the table which belongs to primary key of top header level table.
When on this subform I tried to click on “Link master Fields” it gives me error “ Cant build a link between unbound forms”
How can I overcome this ?
