How to Select a Specific Record in a Subform

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to show you how to open a form and select a specific item in its subform. For example, if you have a list of orders, you can select one specific order and then open up the customer's form which may have a subform on it with all of his orders. That specific order will then be selected.

Cara from Tulsa, Oklahoma (Platinum Member) asks: I have a continuous form showing a master list of all of my orders sorted by date. Is there a way I could double-click on an order, have it open the customer's form, and then on that customer form select that specific order from the order subform on that form?


Members will learn how to hide the ID on the subform without generating errors. It's a little thing, but it makes your form look a lot more professional if you don't want to see those IDs everywhere.
