    I populate my subform by entering matching data into the main form. This is
    done by using the Master and Child fiels properties of the subform. Good!

    However I also want to past different data from the main form to the subform
    and after reading the posts they all suggest doing the same Master and Child
    Field properties please help.

    I found out that both cannot be done on the same form.

    Please help

    Why?

    Storing data redundantly is almost NEVER a good idea.

    You can do it, programmatically in VBA, but before I post code I'd
    like to be sure I wouldn't be giving you the tools to do something
    you'll regret doing!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
