I'm trying to allow edit on a sub-form from a command button on the main for with the following code.  But it isn't working.

Forms!subfrmWorkOrderDetail.Form.AllowEdits = True

Can someone tell me what is wrong with the code?  When I click the command button I get an error...  Runtime error 2450.  Can't find the referenced form.
