Running Form code remotely

I have a subform that collects some data from the main form. when I change or enter information into the subform code runs to check various stuff on the subform and to calculate new subform totals.

The problem arises when something changes in the main form that should effect calculations in the subform . It does not of course because the subform code will not run unless procedures in the subform are activated by entering data in the controls.

In the subform I have a procedure called CGlass which recalculates the price of glass when the sizes in the subform change. I want this procedure to run when I change an overall size in the main form That should change the sizes in the subform and then recalculate the glass price.

So can I run a suform procedure and refresh the subform from the main form?

Set your subform procedure CGlass to Public and call it from your main form this way:
Call Me.NameOfSubformControl.Form.CGlass

If your subform is not linked to the main form, and what is displayed in the subform should depend on what is displayed in the main form, then from those controls on the main form that should influence the subform, you should requery the subform, using the AfterUpdate event, something like:

Private Sub txt_MainFormControl_AfterUpdate

    me.NameOfSubformControl.Form.requery

End Sub

Note:  "NameOfSubformControl" should be replaced by the value in the Name property of the subform control, when it is displayed in design view, on the main form.  This may be (but is not necessarily) the name of the form that shows up in the "SourceObject" property of the subform control.
