Is the main form a 3rd form? and will the row be selected beforehand?
It may be easier to have a global variable and populate it when the row is selected.
e.g.
on subform click event
 gVar = vvv

and on main form load
 fieldX = gvar

Hello COACHMAN99

Is the main form a 3rd form? and will the row be selected beforehand? - probably, I guess. Like when you open a main form, the very first row of the sub form is selected by default, isn't it?

Private Sub Form_Click()
Forms("frmMain").Text3 = vvv
End Sub

Is using a global variable is a good approach?

if you are working with a main and sub form then place the following code in the sub form (click event) - no global variable. (vvv = your field)

Private Sub Form_Click()
Forms("frmMain").Text3 = vvv
End Sub
