Access VBA. Get ID of record clicked on in additional subform


On my Access form that has a linked sub form I have placed an additional sub form. I want to write VBA code that will find the ID of the record
that was clicked on and then select that record in the main form. What event and VBA code would I use to do this? Thanks

Use the Form (subform) Current event:
Private Sub Form_Current

    With me.parent.recordsetclone
        .findfirst "[ID] = " & NZ(me!ID)
        If .nomatch then 
            msgbox "record not found"
            me.parent.bookmark = .bookmark
    end with

End Sub

I guess it would be:

Private Sub Invoice_Click()

    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    Set rs = Me.Parent!NameOfOtherSubformControl.Form.RecordsetClone

    rs.FindFirst "[Sales Order ID] = " & Me!ID.Value & ""
    If Not rs.NoMatch Then 
        Me.Parent!NameOfOtherSubformControl.Form.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
    End If

End Sub
