Multiple Nested Continuous Subforms

How to Create Multiple Nested Continuous Subforms


 S  M  L  XL  FS  

In this video, I'll show you how to create multiple continuous (list) subforms inside of each other. We'll track data for a fictional college and store departments, courses, and classes. So if you want to know in which courses you'll find classes like "Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Favorite Hits" or "Which Captain is Your Favorite, and Why is it Picard?" then you'll be able to quickly locate them with these forms.

Elaine from Sante Fe, NM (an Access Expert student) asks: I have someone who wants to enter info for each of the four tables in the database in one giant form. I've created four different forms with continuous subforms. I'm stumped as to how to get them to work together, flowing from the top table selection and then related data showing through the other three tables. How do you set this up?

BONUS FOR CHANNEL MEMBERS:
Silver Members and up get access to a 37-minute long EXTENDED CUT of this video which covers additional examples. That video will show you how to create another subform that has a list of students enrolled in each class. You will create a student table and subform, a junction table to hold a many-to-many relationship with the class table, and a combo box on that student form to select each student. Plus the Extended Cut shows how all of the initial tables and forms were built from scratch.

Thanks, Rick. You clearly demonstrate subform creation using one-to-many relationships and how you can relate and show all the detail from each each table using continuous forms. I'd like to do the exact same thing with many-to-many relationships: use continuous forms and show all the detail, not only the "product" and "vendor" names (so to speak). Would that require using dlookup from an ID field in the the junction table subform to autopopulate a subsubform with the detail? Read More...

You could join together any related info you want to display in a query, but keep in mind that info would only be for display only. You won't be able to edit it (usually).

You can ONLY put a subform in the form header or footer sections. Access won't let you put it in the detail section. Think about it, you'd have a copy of the subform for EACH detail record. It wouldn't look right.
