Hi,

(I may have read something about this before but can't find anything)>

I have FORM1 which calls a subform FORM2.
Then within FORM2 I am trying to call FORM3.

However, this does not work.

Is there some general problem calling a "SUBFORM" when you are already in a "SUBFORM"?

You have to refer to the Parent form first.

From within FORM2 :

Me.Parent.YourSubForm3SubFormControlName.Form!SomeControlName
