Refer to a calculated control in a subform from a recordset.

Hello Experts. I have an issue which is out of my area of expertise and could really do with some expert help, so thanks in advance:

I have some code which is meant to update some values in a subform. The recordset I am using must refer to the values in a calculated control on my subform - and this is what I am struggling to do.

How do I refer to my calculated control from with a recordset?

This is my current code:

        Dim rsc As DAO.Recordset
        Set rsc = [frmAllocateToBuildComponentSub].Form.RecordsetClone
        rsc.MoveFirst
        Do Until rsc.EOF
        rsc.Edit
        rsc!stockcheckqty = *** SOMETHING LIKE THIS : stockcheckqty - mycalculatedcontrol) ***
        rsc.Update
        rsc.MoveNext
        Loop
    

Open in new window



If it helps here is a snip of my button and the controls I want to refer to:

Assuming you have controls named stockcheckqty and mycalculatedcontrol this should work:
rsc!stockcheckqty = stockcheckqty - mycalculatedcontrol

Hi... thanks for the reply.

I already tried that but it won't work. I assume because the button is on the parent form and the controls are on the subform. The code runs but sets all my values to ZERO and I have previously identified it's looking on the parent from when I use that code.

Oh i see:
rsc!stockcheckqty = Forms![main form name]![subform control name].Form![stockcheckqty] - Forms![main form name]![subform control name].Form![mycalculatedcontrol]
