How can I suppress the "Enter Parameter Value" pop-up window?

    I have a form with 2 subforms. Both subforms are linked to a "Name" field.
    When I want to add a new record, I get the "Enter Parameter Value" pop-up
    window, because there is no data in that "Name" field and that field is
    linked to subforms. If I click "ok" on the window, all is fine. So ... what
    I'm looking for is a way to suppress this window when I create new records.

    Is there any way I can get around this? Visual Basic code? Anything? :)

    Thanks.

    Name is a bad choice of fieldname. Forms, Fields, Controls, Subforms,
    etc. all have a Name property! If you use Name as the name of the name
    field and the name control Access will very likely get confused. Any
    chance you could change this fieldname?

    If you have the Master Link Field and Child Link Fields properly set,
    and if the query doesn't have any unresolved paramters (e.g.
    fieldnames which Access cannot find), then you shouldn't be getting
    any prompts. Could you post the Recordsource property of this subform
    (post the SQL view) and the values of the subform's Master and Child
    LInk Fields?

    John-

    You are the man. That's exactly what the problem was. I changed the Name
    field to Candname and all worked perfectly. I totally forgot about "Name"
    being one of those "keywords".

    Thanks!
