    Please help me with the syntax for this stLinkCriteria. I have a main form
    with two subforms. Subform1 is in datasheet view and shows a few columns
    from the Classes table. When I click on a Class Row in the datasheet, I want
    to show the detail for that class in subform2. I've been going around in
    circles with this silly problem for 10 days, with no success. I guess I
    haven't asked the right question.

    I've tried using Link Child Fields, and Link Master Fields, with no success.

    Perhaps I can achieve my desired end with some VB, based on an OnCLick event
    in subform1. What would be the stLinkCriteria and DoCmd to show detail in
    subform2. The Primary key to the Classes table is ClassID.


    stDocName = "subform2"
    stLinkCriteria = ???
    DoCmd ???

    For an example of how to build this kind of form, open the Northwind sample
    database, and the Customer Orders form. Follow that example.
