I am a very new user of MS Access.
There is my problem:

I have a form (F_InputEquipment) within a form (MF_Equipment).  From
F_InputEquipment run a
query with the following Criteria:
[forms]![F_InputEquipment].[txb_InputServer] and every
time I have an input request of that field. 
What is the syntax to do a field reference from a subform within a form..?
I will rerally appreciate your help.

Thanks & Regards
Jose Barrancos

jbarrancos-ga ,

The Access Web FAQ contains a complete reference for referring to one
form and its controls and properties from another form. The page below
shows both references that start from the Main form and also
references starting from the subform.

Refer to Form and Subform properties and controls

None. I use this excellent FAQ often and have it bookmarked.

I think your looking for something like:


You need to refer to the parent form first, then the child as part of
the "Form" collection within that.
