The main form has a button to find a record.  I have a subform on the main form that has vba code to open a recordset and show a list of records.  I would like that to happen when I click on the button on the main form.

I just need the code to be able to reference the vba in the subform from the main form so it will run.

Main form name: frmMain
Subform name: frmFCDBHeader

The code that needs to be called n the subform is: Public Sub FCDB()

Thanks,
Scott

Is there some particular reason that you are working with unbound forms?

If the subform were bound, it's Recordsource query could reference a control on the mainform to get selection criteria:

WHERE somefield = Forms!MyForm!somefield

Then in the click event of the button, you would requery the subform.

Me.sfrmName.Requery
