subform

I have 3 subforms on my main form.

2 of them i have no problem with.
When i click on a column Header for a field it keeps invoking an query to run.
All i want to do id sort that suform by the Column header i'm picking.
If i right click on the Column Header. No Problem.
it only if i directly click on column Header ??


Thanks

Do you have code that runs in that form? That's about the only way it would launch a query - unless you're experiencing corruption, of course.

Have you performed maintenance on the database lately (i.e. compact, etc)?

Are your Windows and Office installs up to date?

there must be some code running on the click event of the header.

open the subform in question in design view, select the column header and hit F4
in the Event tab see what is on the Click event
click on the (...) to go to the vba window and copy the codes behind the click event and post here.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm confused...
All i want to do id sort that suform by the Column header i'm picking.
If i right click on the Column Header. No Problem.
it only if i directly click on column Header ??
Currently in Access you cannot simply "Click" on a column header to have it sort (like you can in some other programs, ...ex.: Outlook)
You either have tho right-click on the column header and select: Sort...
Or click directly on the small arrow:
arrow and select: Sort...

When i click on a column Header for a field it keeps invoking an query to run.
Then like the others have posted, ...it seems that you have some type of code on the subform,
...that is the only way and code, or query will run...

Can you post a sample database that exhibits this behavior?

I found the problem.
I researched and found no queries.

I went to each field and looked at the property "FilterLookup"  ALL of them were set to Default View.

I changed it to "Never"
now when i click the small down arrow i get the shortcut window and and sort asc or desc
