I have this code in an onclick event of a checkbox on a main form...

If Me.chkbxGrowDay1Selected = True Then
       Forms!frmPlanted!subfrmReady.txtReadyDate = Me.txtplantdate + Me.txtGrowDaysCalc
    End If

 but it doesn't seem to like the line...

 Forms!frmPlanted!subfrmReady.txtReadyDate = Me.txtplantdate + Me.txtGrowDaysCalc

What is wrong with the syntax?

assuming that "subfrmReady" is the name of the subformcontrol


 Forms!frmPlanted!subfrmReady.FORM!txtReadyDate = Me.txtplantdate + Me.txtGrowDaysCalc

Thanks.  That syntax seems to be ok.  But now a new issue and I can award this solution and ask another question.  Please watch for question titled "How update all records in a subform"
