OK, one last try! Thanks for the info, but I seem to miss the vital bit somehow. Maybe I should reword the question.
As I select various rows on the [database view] Subform,how (or where) do I execute code triggered by that event?
welshgasman, after opening the Form in design view, there's the Form itself colored Grey, and a big white area for the subForm. Is the "Top Left" you refer to the square where below and to to the right, is the ruler ? From that ALt-Enter shows Properties, and you can get to the Forms On Current event to write code. But that's not the on current event for the subForm. Or is it - with more work somehow ?
Anyway, maybe the question is better now ?
