Obtaining SubForm Information from Main From

I have a standard Mainform 'frmInstallPayHdr', subform 'frmInstallPaySub' form.  They are both bound forms 'tblInstallPayHdr' and 'tblInstal;lPaySub' respectively..

The link between the Main and Subform is InstallPayHdrID which is the unique autonumber primary key assigned to each InstallPlan.

From within 'frmInstallPayHdr' I would like to get a list of all the elements in 'frmInstallPaySub'.

My plan is to pull the list using ADO with a select string something like 'Select * from tblInstallPaySub  Where InstallPayHdrID (in sub table) = InstallpayHdrID (in main table) and a loop to read all the returned records.

Is there a better/easier way to get the list of elements in the subform?
