I have a blank Access form whose format is single form.

I placed a subform in the detail section of the form.  The subform is tied to one of my tables.  I want to display the subform as Continuous Forms but it won't allow me to.  When I go into the subform's properties, even though the format selection has been changed to Continious Forms, it still displays as DataSheet, which is he default.

What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.

the subform is not set to allow additions

Data tab of properties: Allow Additions = Yes

you can change it back if the subform is on a single form ;)

Have you tried opening the subform in design mode and setting allow datasheet view property to no.

just set the Default View property back to continuous for the subform

Access will gripe but you CAN use a continuous subform on a single form
You can also use a continuous form on a continuous form as long as the subform is in the main form header or footer
