Subform isn't loading properly

I have a strange thing going on with one of my subforms in access.

My subform is based on a query that uses two date fields and an another field to filter the results.

When I first enter that information and hit refresh, nothing shows up in the subform. However, in the record counter at the bottom of the subform, it shows that there should be records there.

If I switch to Design mode and then go back to View mode then the items show in the subform.

I have no idea why this is.


I am attaching the database to this question. The form is titled frm_Act1TO.

The subform I am looking at is beneith the Beginning date and End Date fields
The button that I have set to pull up the records once the dates are entered is the Refresh button.

The third item that the query needs is the listing in the "Select a Sub Task Order" combo box.

Thank you, in advance!

The button macro isn't specifying which form to refresh. Edit the button macro and add a "GoToControl" before your refresh and then specify the name of your subform. Then when the button is clicked, the focus goes to the subform and the refresh loads the records.

Add a "GoToControl"

Try using this code for the 'Refresh' button's Click event,
    Me!SubPreviousReports.Form.Refresh

Open in new window


To do that select the button in design view, on the Event tab remove [Embedded Macro] from On Click, select [Event Procedure] and click the ellipsis  (...).

You should now see this,
Private Sub btnFindOldReports_Click()
   
End Sub

Open in new window

which is where the code goes, like this.
Private Sub btnFindOldReports_Click()
    Me!SubPreviousReports.Form.Refresh
End Sub

Open in new window
