Subform question - MS Access

I have 2 subforms on my form. The first one is fine. It has a detail section that allows me to drag controls onto it, etc.  When I created the second subform, it just appears on the form as a big white box.  What am I doing wrong?  Like subform1, I want to be able to put controls on subform2.  thanks

Nevermind. I figured it out. The Control Wizards was not set to on.

does subform2 have records to display?

Not yet. Because its record source is a temporary table that is currently empty.  I'll ultimately be using subform1 to copy selected records (one by one by use of a command button on subform1) from subform1 (whose record source is a different table) to subform2.

But I need to populate subform2 with some textboxes to display the temporary table data; as I won't be displaying all temporary table fields in subform2. Only selected ones.

I created a new database quickly and put a subform on a form to illustrate what I'm referring to.  Normally when I put a subform on a form, it will initially display with a horizontal and vertical ruler, a header section, a detail section, etc.  And I think even the wizard opens automatically to ask some questions.  Now when I put a subform on a form, all I get is a white box like in the attached.
