Combo Box on Subform only updating related records in Main form.

I have a Main Form "frmInvoice" and a subform "subfrmShipments". Linked on InvoiceNumber field. One invoice to many shipments.

Combo Box on subform has rowsouce as SELECT ShipmentID, InvoiceNumber, TrackingNumber FROM tblShipments;
and in after update event
Me.RecordsetClone.FindFirst "[ShipmentID] = " & Me![Combo15]
Me.Bookmark = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark

Problem is the Combo Box only updates / finds the records relating to the invoicenumber on the main form. Is there a way to get it to update even if the main form is not currently on the related InvoiceNumber?

Scaled down version of db attached.  First frmInvoice record has 3 shipments, if selecting the fourth record in the drop down of the Combo Box the record is not selected.
