hi

how do i get the value of a field tucked away in a tab

i'm guessing it's something like forms("main").subforms("details").fields("lease id").value

but i know subforms isn't the right syntax

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Can you give more information?

What do you actually mean by a 'tab'? Is it a subform or a tab on a multitab control?

In the meantime from Access Help:
To refer to a subform or subreport

Refer to the subform or subreport control on the form or report that contains the subform or subreport, then use the Form or Report property of the control to refer to the actual subform or subreport.

Type the identifier for the form that contains the subform, followed by the name of its subform control, the . (dot) operator, and the Form property. For example, the following identifier refers to the Orders Subform subform on the Orders form:
Forms![Orders]![Orders Subform].Form
I hope this helps.
