Access 2010 Code to Reference Navigation Form

Hello Experts.

I have the following reference code that works on a form created with several subforms attached.

Forms![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner]![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner_SubFrm_FDB].Form!txtSearchBrandName = Null

Or

[Forms]![MainForm]![SubForm].Form![Control] = Null

I wanted to clean up the look of the database, so I created a Navigation form and placed all the forms onto the new Navigation form.

How do I reference the Navigation form in the above code to get it working again?

Thank in advance for your help.
David

you will use this command to view "FormX"

DoCmd.BrowseTo acBrowseToForm, "FormX", "Navigation Form1.NavigationSubForm"

Hello capricorn and thank you for your response.

I'm a bit confused with your response.  It doesn't take much for me.

I was looking for a code change to my original working code that would include the new navigation form that I dropped all other forms/subforms onto.

I tried things like

Forms![NavigationForm]![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner]![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner_SubFrm_FDB].Form!txtSearchBrandName = Null

but this does not work.  I have other code within the form where I would have to make similar changes.  Any ideas on how to get the existing code to work with newly created navigation form?

Thanks

capricorn,

Thanks for your responses and trying to help me, but I'm not seeing how this is going to help me.

I'm not trying to view a form on the navigation form, I'm trying to reference a control within the navigation's forms, subform, subform to be used else where.

Is there any way to reference the navigation form [MainMenu] in the code below so that I can reset the value of control to NULL?

Forms![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner]![frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner_SubFrm_FDB].Form!txtSearchBrandName = Null

As I mentioned, I have other code simular to this that I'll need to change so that it properly references the navigation form.

Any thoughts on how to reference properly?

I found the answer I was looking for.

When I created the Navigation form and named it [MainMenu], I was only referencing form [MainMenu] and the subforms that I pulled into this form within my code.  What I failed to realize was that when I created the Navigation form it created a subform within it called [NavigationSubform].

Form Hierarchy:
NavigationForm  = MainMenu
NavigationSubform
Subform2  = [frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner]
Subform3 (within subform2) = [frm_PremierProductLaunchPlanner_SubFrm_FDB]

I also found when referencing a control within Subform3, I don’t have to reference Subform2.  I believe this is because the Navigation form sees Subform2 and Subform3 as individual forms and not within one another.

Here’s the code that will work

Forms![NavigationForm].Form![NavigationSubform].Form![Subform3]![Control]

Thanks for trying to help with my question.
