linking 2 sub forms

    I have an arrangement almost identical to the Northwind DB "Customer Orders"
    form. The Main Form holds two subforms. Subform1 is a datasheet view of
    orders for the customer. Subform2 is a design view of an order. The idea is
    that when the user clicks on a line in subform1, a design view of that order
    should appear in subform2.

    The main form correctly shows the customer info, as does subform 1. Subform2
    appears, but all the data boxes are blank.

    The one difference from my situation and the NW DB is that both of my
    subforms are based upon the Orders file. Is this my problem? Do I need to
    create a query or somehow a copy of the orders table so that this will work.
    I want the user to be able to edit info on subform2, and of course that
    might affect a field that is visible on subform 1.

    On subform2 the Source Object is subform1; Link Child Fields = OrderID; and
    Link Master Fields = [subform2].Form![OrderID]
