I want to populate a text box on a main form with entries and selections from a datasheet subform.  The datasheet subform looks like this:

Quantity                            Object
1 (entered value)             Football (selected object from combobox)
4 (entered value)             Baseball (selected object from combobox)
etc.                                     etc.

I have this code which works for one row entry/selection in the datasheet:

Private Sub Form_AfterUpdate()

    Me.Parent.txtOjectDefinition = Me.txtQuantity & " " & Me.cboObject.Column(1)

End Sub

But if I were to select the 2nd row in the datasheet followed by the first row, I want the text box on the main form to look like this:

4 Baseball + 1 Football

(note the + mark between the selections)

How can this be done?
