Hello pdvsa,

As far as I know, continuous forms do not have this kind of built-in feature.

You may try a tree-view control.

You will have to switch the form to DatesheetView.

Thank you.  Gustav:  from my testing, if the form is in datasheet the expansion button is not seen like it is in a table.  If you know otherwise please let me know.
