    Would someone be able to direct me to an article or an answer to how to dbl
    clk on a record in a subform list box and have it open the record in the
    parent form OrdersWDetails form.
    If more info is needed the following doesn't work OrderID is Number:
    Private Sub List0_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String
    'need to get this to open record clicked on don't know if it is DLookup or ??
    'stDocName = Me.OrderID.OrdersWDetails
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

    End Sub
    Thanks!

    I'm not sure I have this straight, so please check my understanding:

    You have a main form named "OrdersWDetails" -- yes?

    This form displays records containing a numeric OrderID field -- yes?

    The OrderID field is a unique key to the records displayed by the main
    form -- yes?

    On that form, there's a subform -- yes?

    On that subform, there's a list box named "List0" -- yes?

    The list box's bound column holds OrderID values -- yes?

    *IF* all that is true, then you can probably use code like this:

    '----- start of suggested code -----
    Private Sub List0_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)

    Dim frm As Form

    Set frm = Me.Parent

    With frm.RecordsetClone
    .FindFirst "OrderID = " & Me!List0
    If .NoMatch Then
    MsgBox "Order not found!"
    Else
    frm.Bookmark = .Bookmark
    End If
    End With

    Set frm = Nothing

    End Sub

    '----- end of suggested code -----

    YES (OrderID is not a visible field)

    > The OrderID field is a unique key to the records displayed by the main

    YES
    > On that form, there's a subform -- yes?

    YES
    > On that subform, there's a list box named "List0" -- yes?

    YES
    > The list box's bound column holds OrderID values -- yes?

    YES
    SELECT Orders.OrderID, Orders.OrderDate, Orders.PurchaseOrderNumber,
    qrySupplierIDLookup.SupplierName, Orders.RequestedBy FROM Orders LEFT JOIN
    qrySupplierIDLookup ON Orders.SupplierID = qrySupplierIDLookup.SupplierID
    ORDER BY Orders.PurchaseOrderNumber;
    5 COLUMNS
    0";0.7";0.8";2";0.7"

    I tried the code as suggested and got Runtime Error 2452 invalid referance
    to the parent property
    Set frm = Me.Parent

    I don't know what to try to fix it.

    You should only get that error if the code is not executing on a
    subform. Are you *sure* your listbox is on a subform, and not on the
    main form? A subform, in this sense, is one that is displayed in a
    subform control on the parent form -- not just a standalone form that is
    related to the main form somehow.

    No I am not sure... but now I think (from your questions) it is on the main
    form...
    It is an unbound list box on a tab
    tabSelectTransaction

    Sorry, so can dbl clicking the item in the list open it within the main form?

    Sure, it's even easier. Just change the code as follows:

    '----- start of suggested code -----
    Private Sub List0_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)

    With Me.RecordsetClone
    .FindFirst "OrderID = " & Me!List0
    If .NoMatch Then
    MsgBox "Order not found!"
    Else
    Me.Bookmark = .Bookmark
    End If
    End With

    End Sub
    '----- end of suggested code -----

    Is tabOrderDetails a tab control, or a page of a tab control?

    You could try this and see if it works:

    Me.tabOrderDetails.SetFocus

    You'd insert that line in the code after the With ... End With block,
    before the End Sub line.

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!
