    I have a form which shows records in datasheet view, when I select any record
    by double clicking on it I have another form opening showing only the record
    I selected. I did this by creating a query for my second form with a pointer
    (in the criteria) to the field in the main form which matches with one of the
    fields in my second form. This works fine whenever I am in the main form but
    I have embedded the main form and now when I double click on a recorded I get
    the following prompt: Enter Parameter value… Could someone kindly advise me
    as to how to get rid of this prompt?

    Since it is now a subform, you must reference the parent, then the subform,
    then the control:

    Forms!Parentform.SubformName.Form!ControlName

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!
