I want to set up an main form (On Open)  event so that when the main form opens up, it can get the value of  filed1 of the selected row  of sub form value and display it…can anybody help. I got confused with many examples in the internet with very long codes.  Please assist.

Thank you

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
