I have a from that is connected to a subform. When you select a record the from searches data in the subform.

I am trying to print out the information.

When it is in print preview it will show the data on the form but for the subform that is continous it shows one field of that record.

What do I need to do to make it work?
I tried copying and pasting the subform and then linking it based on a field but that doesnt work.

Is there example somewhere that anybody knows that I can look at.

Hi,

Without seeing your form, in general you should create a report rather than printing a form.  Reports have more print features while forms have more screen features.

You can save the form as a report and start there.

Bill

First, don't print a form.  You need to make a report, using a query with the many and one tables linked.  This will let you display the data from the main table and linked data for each main table record, in a grouped report.  You can use the Query Wizard to get started.
