Why doesn't the Afterupdate code select the records in the subform?

I have attached a file. If you open the main form and try selecting a writer, the combo box does not work. I used the code below.
What is wrong?


Private Sub CmbSearch_AfterUpdate()

If Len(Form_WriterTotalByWriter_subform.Filter) > 0 Then
Form_WriterTotalByWriter_subform.Filter = Form_WriterTotalByWriter_subform.Filter & " AND " & "Writer = '" & Me.CmbSearch & "'"
Form_WriterTotalByWriter_subform.Filter = "Writer = '" & Me.CmbSearch & "'"
End If
Form_WriterTotalByWriter_subform.FilterOn = True
End Sub
