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

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!
