Record count does not show up between navigation buttons on subform.

I am designing a form which has an embedded subform. The main form does not have a recordset. Its only purpose is to provide a few buttons for actions. The subform is a datasheet. The recordset is a linked table to MS SQL Server. The subform has code in the Load event which modifies the recordset's WHERE clause based on the value of a TempVar. This works fine but it is a clue, because when this code is commented out the problem doesn't exist. If I open the subform directly the NavigationButtons show the correct record count and position. If I move to a new record using either VBA or just by clicking on a row the NavigationButtons show the correct record count and position in the recordset. If I requery the subform from VBA or by clicking Refresh All on the ribbon the NavigationButtons show the correct record count and position. If I change the subform from a datasheet to a continuous form the NavigationButtons show the correct record count and position.

This all makes me believe that I should be able to program some event to do one of the above actions. The problem is that I haven't been successful in doing so. Can anyone explain why this happens and more importantly how to resolve it?

Thanks in advance.
