I have a form frmVenAttendence that I added into a navigation form frmNavigation. the frmVenAttendence has a text box control  named businessname which is used on a report to display the contents of that control on the report. The report control  Source is =[Forms]![frm_VenAttendance]![businessname] which works fine outside the the navigation form. I know that when you put the form into a navigation form it actually becomes a subform of the navigation form and I need to reference both, but I am having a hard time getting the syntax correct. I have tried
 =[Forms]![frmNavigation]![frm_VenAttendance].[form].[businessname]
=[Forms]![frm_VenAttendance]![frmNavigation].[form].[businessname]
neither work and am asked to enter the parameter value for that control.
