help with dependent comboboxes from DIFFERENT subforms

    Here is my situation. I have a main form for data entry (binning of
    different categories of the subject reports for the purposes of
    trending). It has numerous subforms. All of the underlying tables are
    linked through a field called "designator". I have numerous subforms
    because it is the only way I have been able to figure out how to make
    multiple entries for each of the topics covered by the different forms.
    For example, I may want to identify multiple "corrective actions" for
    a given designator - so I have a subform feeding a seperate table.

    Here is where I get tripped up. I have a combobox (called tybecbx) in
    a subform called "type". I have another subform called, "subtype".
    This subform also has a combobox. It is called subtypecbx. I want the
    subtypecbx combobox (located on a specific subform) to be populated
    based on my selection in the typecbx combobox on a totally different
    SUBform. Obviously, these comboboxes must be bound. I intend to have
    them bound to a table called "TypeSubType".

    I have two lookup tables. The first is used to populate the options
    for the typecbx combobox. The second, which has all possible
    type/subtype combinations defined is meant to populate the second
    dropdown.

    Any wisdom would be much appreciated.
    TIA
