If this is a control source , try:

=[Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].Column(1)

But that will not work in a query.  In a query, you would need to create a function that would return that value, something like:

PublicFunction fnSpecies(ColNum) as variant

    fnSpecies = [Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].Column(ColNum)

End Function
