Show details in subform from other table as pop-up/other crossponding to specific ID - MS Access - Forms


I have a form for a table say "test" and in that there is a subform. The subform have 9 different fields/columns. One of the column/field (which is called Source_ID) is linked with ID from other table "Source".I want that when click on the subform in this field "Source_ID" it should display/pop up the details for that Source_ID from Source table for that specific Source_ID. Can anyone help me in that?

Thank you.

I would avoid this for the Click event and either use the double click event.

Or create a shortcut menu you can use in that control that will allow you to call the popup for.  See my series of articles on short-cut menus, starting here.
