What do you mean - you want to INSERT data into a record, and then show it via a Main form and Subform?

Or you want to take data from a Main form and Subform and INSERT that data somewhere?

Generally you would take the data from the underlying table of the form/subform and insert into another table.  Can you provide a sample of what you are trying to accomplish.

Then lets drop the term "Insert Statement"
...and just say: "Take the data from a Main form and subform and insert into a table "

When you specify "Insert Statement", ...you seem to be specifying the exact technology (SQL *Insert statements*, in his case) that you want us to uses, ...despite the fact that there may be other ways to accomplish this...

That all being said, ...I have to ask why you need to do this...?
The very nature of a one to many relationship is to avoid having one table with two different sets of data, ...not to mention the fact that if you do this, you would would create redundant data, (that would need a mechanism for being updated when the source data changes)

The typical way of dealing with this is to make a query joining both of your tables.


So you may wish to restate your ultimate need here, ...then experts can recommended the best way to accomplish this...

Here is a sample of a *query* that displays mainform/subform (Parent/Child) data.
(It can be filtered as well)
...but I think this addresses your question here as I understand it...

I agree, we need an example of what you are trying to accomplish as there's usually a little cleaner way without having to duplicate the same information in various tables.
