if you have code like :
Function ShowControls()
Dim frmCust as Form  
Dim i as Integer 
Set frmCust = Forms("Customer")  
For i = 0 To frmCust.Count - 1    
Debug.Print frmCust(i).ControlName  
Next i 
End Function

Open in new window

And you want to do the same kind of exercise on a subform, how would you do it ?
I am getting errors in the Set frmCust=Forms("Customer") as it not able to find it whereas if the subform is treated like a stand alone form it works great.
I have tried Forms!Mainform!Customer and forms!MainForm!SubformControlName! . It seems a minefield trying to get the referencing right. Any assistance would be great as I need to access subform elements via their index number whilst it part of a mainform/subform set up.
