Requery Subform Macro


I have a main form with several tabs on it.

One of the tabs has a sub form and the tab itself has a command button that deletes a record via a Macro.

What i want to do is once the deletion has occurred the subform (that contained the record which is now deleted) is requeried but I can't seem to get it to work?

Error message is:

'There is no field named 'Forms![Project Details]![OwnerProject subform]' in the current record.'

I'm sure its syntax but can't see where i'm going wrong.

Many thanks

where you get this error from?

to refresh a subform, you can try like:

Open in new window

Hi Ryan,

I got the error after running the macro.

Can i use me.yoursubform.requery via a macro? It seems like VBA?

Hi Ryan,

I should add, the macro to run the query is being run from a dialog form and the subform is on the main form.

Not sure if that makes any difference...

This task is so simple, it hardly needs a macro.  Try this line (after the record deletion), substituting your form and subform names:


Open in new window

yes, that's VBA codes, as we would like to refresh the subform once the record was deleted.
