try this codes

private sub button_click()
with me.subformcontrolName.form.recordsetclone
     .findfirst "[ID]=200"
     if not .nomatch then
         me.subformcontrolName.form.recordsetclone.bookmark=.bookmark
     end if

end with
end sub

for dynamic  record id selection, use a control In the main form that display the "[ID]" number

This should do:

Private Sub YourButton_Click()

    Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
    Dim Id As Long

    If Not Me.NewRecord Then
        Id = Me!Id.Value
        With Me.YourSubformControlName.Form
            Set rst = .Recordsetclone
            rst.FindFirst "[ID] = " & Id & ""
            If rst.NoMatch = False Then
                .Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
            End If
        End With
    End If

    Set rst = Nothing

End Sub
