Split Form - filter

Experts,

I have a form in Split view and datasheet at bottom.
Was wondering if there is a simple way to filter the bottom datasheet for what is at the top in the form?
Might seem like an odd question but maybe there is a simple solution to this in a split form.

thank you.

in the pic, I am interested in showing the data for only the Date as shown in the form part and then what shows in the data is the record for that date.

It is the list subform that controls what shows in the single record form, not vice versa.

If you right-click into the date field you should see filtering options.  I don't know if they will work in the single record form but the filters will work in the list subform.

thats pretty close to what I am looking for.  I didnt know of that filter option. I do see it in both the form and datasheet.  Its not exactly what I was looking for because its limited to only that record and cant use the page up or down to see other records and if remove the filter then all records display.  I will leave open and see if any other expert has experience with this if you dont mind.  
I also do not want to split the table into 2.  

thank you

I didn't suggest splitting the table into two.

Access implements the split form with two subforms.  One to show the list and the other to show the single record that has the focus in the list subform.  If you click into a different record in the list subform, the single record subform switches to that record.

I never use the Access split form.  I always build my own and I can do what you requested if I build the forms myself but we have little control over the process when using an Access split form.

Try clicking into the control in the list subform, you might get different options.  Also, the options you do get will differ depending on whether the form is displaying a date or a text field.

Thank you Pat.  Just to clear my previous post, my comment about splitting the db into 2 tables was because i thought another expert might have suggested as a solution.
